"Admitted via a&e"

About: Bradford Royal Infirmary

Paramedics were fantastic. Hospital experience less so. Made to feel we were inconvenient. Had to ask staff to attend to my sister when in pain. Agency nurse got brittle when advised couldn't be pregnantt because no womb!! . Nobody introduced themselves. Looked at me like I was in the way. Try treating people like humans. Then admitted to ward and sent home in agony told to wait for gall bladder op. Why?
