"The nurses were wonderful but the doctor was arrogant"

About: Royal Bolton Hospital / Gastroenterology

(as the patient),

I was admitted to The Royal Bolton Hospital for a colonoscopy; a regular event due to my family history. All the care was very efficient in that unit F3. Findings were openly discussed and reassurance was given. Five days later I was readmitted through A&E following substantiated bleed. I was given I.V fluids and my blood pressure dropped and the bleeding stopped after some hours. I recovered very quickly and I wanted to know what my blood pressure readings were. The nurses were wonderful but the doctor was reluctant to discuss or give any information. I would describe them as arrogant and ignorant.
