What I liked
Nothing. We were refused to be treated at this hospital!
What could be improved
We were refused treatment for a sprained ankle and were instead sent to St Austell. What if we didn't have a car? And what about the patient being in pain??
"Health chiefs say that patients attending A&E instead of accessing the other NHS services available for non-urgent care, inevitably impact on the ability of the emergency team to respond to serious injuries and life-threatening conditions.
Instead they are encouraging people to consider alternatives for minor injuries and ailments, including [...] Minor Injury Units at local community hospitals "
