"absolutely sickening place"

About: Manchester Royal Infirmary

Admitted in after collapsed and sensitive to lights. Sever kidney infection. Was not even asseses on pain scale and was told to go walk in. No cleaners anywhere yet you employ people to open doors! Had to do urine sample in vile disgusting toilet then place in a hatch leading to 'used utility room. This hospital and staff where shocking. Got given antibiotics containing amoxicilian after telling doctor I have bad reactions to it! This place was like being in the 3rd world cant believebi was in the uk! Disturbing the nhs let this place run.
