"HDU staff wonderful general ward staff nil point!"

About: Dewsbury & District Hospital

I was admitted via A&E & couldn't have been treated better or faster.The wonderful treatment continued on the HDU ward but when moved the nurses attitude couldn't have been more different.I suffer from severe depression & anxiety attacks & they couldn't have been less compassionate if they had tried.I was so distressed that I walked out in a worse state than when I was admitted.You expect the nursing profession to be a little more understanding of mental health.Shame on them
