"Reponse to 999 call amazing , thank you"

About: Scunthorpe General Hospital

Treatment at Scunthorpe general a joke, after 3 attempts to insert a canulor, (sorry for spelling) !! And failing,a nurse decided just to take bloods, in 7 hours, no drink or food offered, after been admitted on to medical assessment unit 8 hours later, we were kept wake with full lights on, and doctors coming round to make assessments at 2 am , people in hospital are ill, they need to rest, no rest on this unit, and not many speaking English staff , had to spell my illness to senior staff on duty.
