What I liked
What could be improved
The attitude of all staff
The efficiency of A&E
I was admitted via ambulance to the A&E unit after I had attempted suicide by overdose. The ambulance staff got me to the hospital in record time, but once there I was made to wait in a corridor with my Girlfriend who was distraught for over 20 minutes. Surely if somebody has ingested a lethal dose of something they should be seen immediately? Not the case. I then sat in a waiting room for one and a half hours and at no point did any nurse or doctor check on me. By this point they would have known from my file that I suffered from Multiple Personality Disorder.
A terrible hospital. The cost of going private is well worth it.
