Having to visit this hospital three times for three different people in last three weeks, all I can say is I have never seen such incompetence on such a large scale as I have here. There a far to many reasons for me to ist here so I will try to keep it simplified. 1 nurses and doctors don't communicate. 2 the patient is given no consideration.3.Relatives are ignored.4.The A@E trolleys were filthy.5 No hand washing took place while we were there.6.patient and family made to feel that they are a nuisance..7 it was so bad you that you left feeling afraid and vulnerable. If this is one of the UK's premier hospital all I can say is god help us.
