"Poor service at accident and emergency"

About: Royal Oldham Hospital / Accident and emergency

(as the patient),

Brought in by ambulance with severe back problem, was told by nurse that I should be wearing trousers (I could not put trousers on). Staff I met seemed indifferent and more interested in sending emails and text messages.

Was left in agony on an examination table. Young girl in next cubicle was choking with no help coming.

I got some painkillers and staggered to the toilets, the place had blood on the floor and pools of urine.
