"urgent care centre"

About: Rochdale Infirmary

I attended urgent care centre with infected wounds as soon as i went to triage i was accused of self harming when in fact the wounds were caused by an animal and then turned round and said i was mentally depressed so i said yes i was depressed as anyone would be when they had lost there mother a few months before and u have the nhs saying their is no stigma with mental health well im sorry u need to review this as the stigma is actually from nhs staff and not the public and every time i visit the centre i get a sarcastic remark of certain members of staff
