"Your a disgrace!"

About: Doncaster Royal Infirmary

Hi my dad was in your hospital for a few days feb 2013 in ICU because of a tear in his intestine due to cancer then later passed away. I felt extremly dissapointed in what you did for him i mean he was only on life support for a few hrs and then you decided to turn it off without even giving him a chance plus he was on the surgical assesment ward for a couple of days while he was in pain what i don't get is why did it take you so long for him to be seen to while he was in there because he would of had more of a fighting chance if he was seen to much sooner.
