"Hospital Feedback"

About: Bedford Hospital South Wing

My fiancé went in to a& e with suspected spinal injuries, head injury and broken bones. The staff we're very nice but didn't seem very confident in what they were doing. All there concern was about the spinal injury which is good but other issues needed to addressed too. They were concerned about several things but then suddenly told us all was ok he can go home. All he was given was a leaflet on head injuries. I feel he should have been admitted as he had dangerously high blood pressure and I'm sure he had concussion. I am very disappointed in the care he was given.
