"Appalling treatment for someone in distress and..."

About: Worthing Hospital

I was admitted via A@E regards a bad burn. . There attitude was judgemental and really extremely unpleasant. . I was assured the crisis team would follow up the next day, which did not happen. I was subsequently readmitted via my GP where the unpleasant judgmental attitude persisted throughout my stay. Needless to say I have been ill again and there attitude persists which makes it very difficult to return to A@E and is now making me extremely il. I think the problem stems with mental health services and there appalling negative treatment of people in crisis. Psychiatric liaison if you get it stinks basically at worthing NHS
