"Couldn't care less about patients"

About: Friarage Hospital Site

Doctor who seen me gave me the impression they weren't interested at all and couldn't be bothered, left me sat in the room for 5 mins then said you can leave you know. No Information given about my injury what I need to do, wouldn't tell me when asked just told me to ask the gp but they won't do anything either they said. No idea what I need to do to recover no help at all waste of 2 hours.
