About: Buckland Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked


What could be improved

A nurse should assess you as soon as you arrive to determine the nature of your visit and prioritiese accordingly and advise you of how long you may have to wait.

Anything else?

I ended up leaving the hospital without being treated. I had a nasty head injury with an open bleeding wound but two teenagers both who came after me were seen in front of me. The nature of their injury was suspected fracture and both were discharged as they had nothing wrong. I was left waiting for an hour by the time I had enough and told them not to bother. I ended up buying the equipment from the chemist and self medicating and sticking back the headwound with steri-strips. Thanks so much for your uncaring service. I wont be signing any more petitions to keep you open.
