"Hospital feedback"

About: The Royal Victoria Infirmary

Anything else?

Seen by consultant neurologist, who was abrupt, unsympathetic and basically said it was hysteria. Second opinion consultant from Sunderland royal diagnosed a potentially life threatening illness guillian Barre and I should have been hospitalised as urgently. Instead I had my pain meds taken off me and told to go back to work. Disgraceful.
