Admitted after serious epileptic attack which result in compression fractures and shoulder/collar bone damage. As non local treated with total contempt, ignored requests for anticonvulsant medication and almost had second attack, a visitor intervened. Even though I hardly walk did not consider me I'll enough to stay. Could not understand that i did not have someone to drive 200 miles to pick me up. Fracture specialist was surprised I was being dismissed on review of X-rays. Just arranged Red Cross to ambulance me over to train station and left me there, no arrangements to make sure I could make changes of trains, the hospital didn't care. Almost collapsed on way home and was sick. Visitor was almost in tears over how I was being treated. Tried to get follow up records a fortnight later spent over an hour being passed from pillar to post.
