"Disgusting and degrading"

About: Royal Berkshire Hospital

What I liked


What could be improved

Spoken to by a consultant paediatrician in an aggressive and rude manner. He shouted at me for bringing my 4 month old son to A&E as there was nothing wrong with him. My son hadn't been feeding properly for days. I got no help, no suggestions of what to do, nothing.
