"was referred"

About: Royal Cornwall Hospital (Treliske)

Was referred to have a small operation, to be there after 9.30am I was there by 10am I was seen by numerous people. I was on a ward with no one else and 3 nurses I asked for water it never came I asked for pain killers I never got them. I was passed from pillar to post without anyone helping me. I was finally seen by someone to which the abscess burst the doctor whilst on the phone threw me a cloth and said clean yourself up. To which I did. I also cleaned up any mess I had made no nurse or anyone came in to see if I was ok. I then sat there for over 3 hours over three hours no one came in to check on me. I then had enough and left. My friend picked me up and gave me a lift home as I got back the hospital called to day I hadn't finished being seen. What a joke! Nearly 5 hours after the doctor threw the cloth at me the last person to see me! I'm disgusted in the wa6 I have been treated!! I will never go again
