About: Horton General Hospital Horton General Hospital Banbury OX16 9AL
I took my 19 yr old daughter into A&E as a last resort as she had been suffering from severe abdominal pains for many months and GP kept prescribing medication for stomach ulcer. After a long wait, while she endured excrutiating pain, she was finally seen by a Triage nurse who told us to go to a walk in centre and if they felt it was serious they would refer her back, when she would have less of a wait! I was horrified at the lack of empathy. Just for the record, we moved miles away to Birmingham shortly after and my daughter was swiftly diagnosed with Crohn's Disease and has been successfully and very kindly treated at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Edgbaston. What a contrast!
