I suffer with scoliosis and attended the hospital at 11:59 via taxi as the ambulance was taking long and I couldn’t wait I had lost all sensation in my toes and legs I was left in the waiting area for over 8 hours without being seen baring in my mind I had made them aware I feel like I’m getting worse and i suffer with scoliosis so I can’t sit up for to long I was ignored! At 3am I was then seen by a doctor when I mumbled to myself “thank you god” the doctor responded “I wouldn’t get to excited” absolutely disgusting attitude from all staff. I even over heard reception staff calling patients “assoles” and that he only came because he was worried about his sperm referring to him as a silly boy in front of me and other patients a msn was left in a wheelchair while having seizures and reception staff just sat there this was horrid to watch and then to get treated as if I didn’t matter on top of seeing all that was terrible. After been seen by the doctor BRIEFLY I was left in the corridor on a met chair where I started to get back pain and cramps I told the doctor she didn’t care only gave me co-dromal when I asked after when she was finally in sight then left me there after I explain the chairs are causing me pain and I was not seen untill after 7am by the day shift doctor I have been bed bound since not been able to see my kids or wash myself all due to the fact of my needs being ignored I found my trip pointless as all that happened in the end of for them to tell me my nerves are pinching and I should continue taking my meds now I’m suffering more than I was when I first went in that place
an hour outside just to get inside where the two-stage registration took another hour. The treatment provided by the doctors and nurses was good but there were very long waits between each consultation. With the Covid restrictions, friends and family members were not allowed in.
