"absolutely nothing"

About: Pontefract General Infirmary

(as the patient),

What I liked

absolutely nothing

What could be improved

absolutely everything

Anything else?

If this is the future for the NHS, god help us! I was admitted for 5 days, saw only 3 doctors, who constantly ignored my pain and discomfort, practically calling me a liar. During the night, no nurse would even attempt to call a doctor, when told on several occassion that I was in severe pain.

On top of this the wards were disgraceful. Admittedly there is a new hospital being built next door, but the current ward are dilapidated and shabby, plus, the new hosptial will, I assume still employ the same staff, few to none are of UK origin.
