Needing blood to be taken was referred to ambulatory care unit at Peterborough hospital. Spent ages waiting in reception, when called by nurse was shown to a tiny room with no windows and placed on a bed with no side rails, totally inappropriate for the boood to be taken. Nurse seemed unsure how to insert cannula, took 3 attempts each more painful than the one before. Then left alone for almost an hour with no call bell or way of getting help. Sure enough, blood line clotted after a few minutes but no way to cal, for help. Painful and bruised glad to leave after 3 hours of nurses trying to restart blood flow.
