"Complaint falls on deaf ears, now on treatment for..."

About: University Hospital Of North Tees

Anything else?

In a nutshell as a letter in detail has been issued to the ceo,however the public deserve to know.... After being admitted on three separate occasions, what can I say...first occasion admitted via ambulance and near death...very complicated but when I was able to move to the short stay until I was made to use the men's toilets and showers, under my bed was dirty and dirty mops were used to clean the floor! Second occasion, again missed a 20cm growth and discharged a few hours later with a box of codeine Lastly, admitted due to the 20cm growth, was put in an unequipped threat, their words not mine, left in a dirty bed, left without pain relief, nurses laughing at my needle phobia now on penicillin for life,,,,they ruptured my spleen and then tried to discharge me with the incorrect pain relief...a 16cm scar and a damaged pancreas that the freeman now have to clean up... If you need treatment...urgently or not I urge you please find another hospital.
