"Staff at Basildon didn’t care about me"

About: Basildon University Hospital

(as the patient),

I was taken to Basildon hospital from Colchester hospital to the heart centre. When I got to the ward it was dirty, I was put in a bed and left until the next morning. I did not see a nurse again that night. In the morning a nurse came to my bed and told me her name again and I never saw her again until I got up and told her the care in the hospital was next to nil. Then a doctor came and tried to stop me from leaving by saying you are too ill to leave. 2 hours later I had a heart attack and was taken to Kings in London where the treatment was second to none. From my experience I feel that the staff at Basildon didn’t care about me and I felt like they wanted to get me out as soon as they could.
