About: Luton & Dunstable Hospital

Was given a Radial Artery blood test with no local anaesthetic which was refused me and was tortured, as this is an extremely painful procedure as I found out. Left me in agony, highly upset and in shock and no aftercare. Failed to get the blood needed for test so total failed visit. Went through torture for nothing. Disgusted and scared to go down there again!
