I had my gall bladder removed on the nhs at Nuffield. I was there 13 hours and not once offered a hot drink even though I saw the lady with the tea cart 6 times giving out hot drinks to the private customers I was offered one meal in the 13 hours (but this was one very nice meal) I have other problems like fibromyalgia and chronic back and pelvic pain use a wheelchair sometimes and the nurse had no idea why I was in so much pain I tried explaining many times it wasn't the procedure that had me hurting it was the chair I was sat in for 13 hours you know things like that cause your pain to worsen it was like she just didn't believe me until I was leaving and screaming in pain this is when she finally got me a wheelchair and kinda apologised saying she had no idea I had other disabilities. to be honest she should have known. I shouldn't have to explain myself to everyone and literally beg for pain relief in a hospital of all places you should be in no pain.
