"Not being able to get a room"

About: Peterborough City Hospital / General surgery

(as the patient),

I have phobias that prevent me from being with others. Been having cancer ops in Peterborough for 15 yrs and always get a room, The old Edith cavel hospital was great never a problem,

But I think this new place is just a joke. !

Went there after no sleep for 24 hrs, as trying to get my head in the right place, taken 30+ Valium just to go in there Only to get there at 7am to be told No Room.

So I left, and went home, and to bed as I was shattered. all the docs etc know I cannot go in without a room.. Staff are good, but there new system for people like me with Mental health probs, Is Just Rubbish,I wish I had the Money to go private..
