"Worst experience ever!"

About: Salisbury District Hospital

Now I have used the A&E department in the past and have always been grateful for the work that they have done. They have always been respectful and provided an amazing service. However I recently used there services through triage and into Majors and was totally disgusted with the amount of respect the junior Dr's gave me. Sadly I was sat next to the nurses station - the junior Dr's enjoyed talking about me in the most disrespectful way possible. I chose to discharge myself to later be taken to another A&E where I learnt I did indeed have a more significant injury - I have to say I will do anything to stay away from Odstock hospitals A&E services!
