"unhappy with treatment"

About: James Paget University Hospital

I was admitted to A&E via ambulance due to severe abdomen pain including diarrhoea and vomiting (also very severe) - I was admitted approx 0130hrs 22 Jun 15. I had not consumed alcohol. I vomited in the ambulance and in the room I was put. I was eventually seen by someone at approx 0415hrs - timings are approx as I was in alot of pain. At approx 0515hrs I was promptly, without choice, discharged, albeit still in alot of discomfort and very disorientated. The taxi driver actually offered more help than the staff in A&E. If not for the ambulance crew, I would have lost alot more faith in our NHS. I suffered a similar illness whilst serving in the British Army in Germany and the treatment I received was far superior - well done Germany.
