Would never be the type to criticise needlessly but feel so strongly about the bad treatment my wife received here that I have to make my opinion known. I feel forced at this point to leave it anonymously as she is having further treatment here and I fear that it will be taken out on her!! The unit itself is spotlessly clean and state of the art. The reception staff and nurses are fantastic - very kind, caring and understanding. However my wife was seen by two female doctors who were a disgrace to the ethos of the department which is meant to be about dignity and respect. They seemed to forget they were treating a real person with feelings and were cold, dismissive, unkind and lacking in any empathy at all. This is is contrast to the male consultant who is very compassionate. My wife was made to feel that she was an inconvenience and came away from the department very upset and still feeling incredibly unwell. I was very shocked at the way they were with her and felt completely helpless. I will be making a formal complaint through the right channels. Great team of people completely let down by two female doctors who clearly areen't doing the job because they care about people.
