"admission onto the surgical triage unit 8 -10th of..."

About: North Manchester General Hospital

Anything else?

I am absolutely disgusted with the treatment I recieved during my stay at your hospital, I was made out to be a hypochondriac by all 3 doctors that seen me, I wasnt found a bed untill 4.30 in the morning and then left untill 9 am that morning I was in pain could not stop vomiting and was very afraid, that day I was seen by a surgeon who said I was fine and could go home that day. I was again left untill 8pm that night before he came back to see me he was very dismissive and did not ask how I was although I had been unable to eat or drink all day he said I could go home, the nurse I had on the unit was amazing she told the doctor I wasn't well enough to go home and he eventually agreed to keep me under observations for another night, I was made to feel like I didn't belong there and I was wasting thier time, I couldn't take it any longer and at 1.30 this morning I discharged myself, im still unwell and can not keep fluid down and still in extreme pain but i wil not be going back there ever again, I will be making an official complaint with the board.
