I was rushed into Wythenshawe hospital with tonsillitis a while ago. I had to wait ages to be seen, about three hours. I was sent somewhere to be seen and then sent somewhere else where I had to wait ages again. I was given tablets but they didn't help and I could open my mouth to take them.
Finally, I was put in a room with screaming babies and had to have lots of needles in me. I saw the needles and they were massive, I was so scared.
I'm thirteen and wanted Mum to stay with me overnight but she wasn't allowed. One night a nurse did stay with me.
The staff at the hospital were really nice and the ambulance people that came to my house were great, they talked alot.
