"reception staff were amazing. doctor on shift was..."

About: Orsett Hospital

I attended minor injuries as my 4 year old daughter had a very sore bruised lump on the heel on her foot. When i got there the doctor told me they don't deal with things like that only broken bones....! I had to beg them to take a look. The doctor looked and said theres nothing they can do. The next day i had to take her to a&e as the pain for her was really bad. She had a needle inbedded in her foot.....!! Extremely bad service from the doctor. But the reception staff were warm and welcoming
