"Concerned about my mother's care"

About: South Tyneside District Hospital / General medicine

(as a relative),

My mother is suffering now as I type. She is in hospital. She has asthma, among other things.

Nothing they give her helps. She asked to delay a camera down her throat as it is very sore. Also asked if there was anything else she could take apart from inhalants. As they effect her throat.

So the doctor took away her nebuliser. He gave her nothing to replace it. Please someone help her. She has suffered so long. The doctors don't treat her as they should.
