"Basic standards not being followed"

About: Royal Blackburn Hospital / General surgery

(as the patient),

Had an appointment today and was running on time. Saw a Dr regarding an operation due to have. The full consultation was carried out including examination with the door held open with a chair onto main corridor. Then taken into another room for basic obs and another nurse was on the phone talking about another patient throughout my procedure. Went down to have an xray to be spoken to like I was hard of hearing. Spoke to staff in normal voice and me like I was at the other side of the hospital.

Come on RBH where is your 6 C's? ? ?
