"Horrendous treatment"

About: Fairfield General Hospital

I was brought into A&E by ambulance at Fairfield after suffering two seizures. I was taken too a cubicle and not long after I was seen by a doctor and it became apparent very quickly I was unable to move my legs. I was then discharged. To cut a long story short, I was told it was psychological, I was taking up a bed. They basically didn't believe me. After 12 hrs I was sent home as I was given a crutch to use. Doctors and nurses were stood around looking at me and laughing. So disrespectful!

I will not be recommending this department to anyone!
