"After spending a considerable ..."

About: Southend Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

After spending a considerable amount of time on this question I can not think of anything.

What could be improved

I was recently admitted to the hospital and the entire experience seemed like something out of a bad horror movie. I was given conflicting stories about my condition and was very confused and worried. The doctor prescribed oral medication for pain relief which i threw up due to having pancreatitis.

Anything else?

I was disheartened when one the nurses on the ward actually agreed with me that the doctor's didn't know very much.
