"Complete joke"

About: Scarborough General Hospital

I dont often leave reviews but think Scarborough hospital deserve the time for one. I went up the other day with a suspected broken foot and possible fractures to my hand. First of all the assessment nurse didnt even check anything seemed like they didnt care and had no idea on how to do their job. Was disgusted at the way I was spoken to. Then other than there being nurses and doctors stood around doing nothing for hours on end and the hospital being dead I was told to wait 3-4 hours. When my appointment was due we waited another hour and asked when we would be in they said theres one person in front of you. After 8 more people went in and 45 minutes later we walked out disgusted.

I only ever go to doctors or hospitals if its absolutely serious other wise I just deal with it. This is one of the main reasons why. Absolutely appalled and disgusted by the lazy and disgusting attitude of people who work there.
