"My baby was left to scream in a waiting room"

About: The Great Western Hospital

This hospital has traumatised my 7month baby today! She had to scream in a waiting room for an hour and a half in the waiting room, it was an emergency fever and was brought in by an ambulance to then be left to watch people come and go whilst we were pushed aside with our poorly baby left to scream the waiting room! Her temperature got higher whilst we were in the hospital because she was in such a state! I cannot believe how poorly she was treated.
