"All staff rude."

About: Leighton Hospital

I ended up having to go to A&E at Leighton Hospital on Tuesday, upon arrival we were greeted by the rudest receptionist that I have come across within the NHS (and I have come across quite a few bad ones trust me). Luckily it was not very busy as we were seen within an hour by a Doctor on call who was also very rude and patronising and even joked about my illness and would not listen to me and left me feeling even worse absolutely was not treated with any dignity or respect apart from the nurse who we seen was very helpful.
