"very busy department, nursing care good. Doctor..."

About: Dewsbury & District Hospital

What I liked

nursing staff were very busy but tried very hard to treat patients well and give full information and support. Xray staff were polite, respectful and tried hard to minimise pain when taking the xrays.

What could be improved

Doctor was abrupt and patronising on this occasion although previously I have always received good medical care. Prehaps they felt the pressure as on this day Dewsbury A & E was the only one open of the 3 A & E's in the Mid Yorkshire trust.
