"Staff are awful"

About: Cumberland Infirmary

Anything else?

I took my pooly baby into childrens outpatients in carlisle which he attends regualy as he has low immune system after going to cue doc and doctors 4 times in 4 week as he is getting worse just to ask if i could speak to a doctor for two mins, only to be told 'i would be lucky thers no doctors' when the doctor who sees my baby was stood right infront of me and pretended not to listen! She then askd who is it i see and i said that doctor right ther to which she replied very nastily she cant she is busy and waited for me to walk of. I was so discusted the way she spoke to me she could see i was worried about my baby and Just wanted 2 mins, also to lie and say there was no doctors was redicilous. also the doc who ignored me was getting her other patient weighed and was stood at the desk, so if she had any heart she could of spoke. I think its discusting you can tell its there job if your not on a list they dont care, and also my babys put down as emergancey in the doctors !!!
