"Poorly treated"

About: Royal Shrewsbury Hospital

I was admitted on 03/03/15 at 2:30 by ambulance and was released at 10:50pm, having had 5 unexplained seziures in 15 hour period. No proper assessments, care or follow up given. With 3 hours before I could even have a cup of water. server headaches not checked, Dirty cubical, next of kin contacted after 4 hours, no pillows, just a blanket from the ambulance, told had a bed for me then no this went on for 8 hours, finally told I would be spending the night on a trolley in the department, and no referral to my own GP. Shropshire does not need there hospitals A&E's closing it needs what they'd have in vastly improving. I since had a Diagnosis on my own referral to my GP surgery as symptoms continue, now waiting on results and further tests.
