"A+E are An absolute joke"

About: Warrington Hospital

I have had the worst experience ever, I have been suffering with severe sickness for the past year on and off, last year when I went to Warrington hospital they were amazing, they give me the care I though I deserved, but when I went into a+e Friday morning, ambulance admission, I was given everything I needed to feel better, as soon as I felt better as obviously the iv tablets were working they couldn't get me gone quick enough, I said to the doctor what do I do if I still feel awful and can't keep anything down, they told me to come straight back in, later on that evening I starting to feel really ill, really quickly I was projectile vomiting everywere I couldn't keep no tablets down, no water down nothing, I collapsed half an hour after all the sickness so my dad took me straight back to a+e, were I was left throwing up in bowl and bowl for 4 hours, for a triage nurse to give me co-codamol that I threw up within 15 minutes of taking, then a further 2-3 for a consultant to say your fine to go home, even if we was to admit you there is no beds! I am really unhappy about this and I now just have to sick at home just being sick and not keeping fluids down because I don't feel welcome to my own hospital!
