"Until I was on the ward"

About: Bedford Hospital South Wing

A&E nurse was excellent and I was going to be sent to Addenbrookes but then I was moved to the a&e ward for the night it was terrible I had no blankets, had to beg and scream for morphine, not told I could eat after 12 hours of nil by mouth so I missed lunch. Sent home even though in agony and almost immobile and incontinent due to nerve impingement in spine. I wish I had been sent to Addenbrookes.
