"Shambolic, inept and not fit for purpose."

About: William Harvey Hospital

After a visit and a short stay at this hospital I can only pray I never get sick or injured again. From the most basic care needs to the very reason I was there, they messed up everything! Notes wrong, treatment wrong, even my age, name DOB was wrong!! It seems that if it can go wrong it will in this place. Constantly. The place is a joke.
