"Being treated like a complete ..."

About: Medway Maritime Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

Being treated like a complete Moron had to be one of the most exciting things I have ever experienced. Yes I am being sarcastic!!!

What could be improved

Consultants attitude could not have been less Arrogant or condersending if he had tried.

Anything else?

I have suffered hernia pain lately with regular protrusion of the lump. Because of a heart attack I had had some 8 years ago and my not having taken medication since the attack I was given a lecture in responsibility and denied a corrective opperation. Having survived 8 years without medication I see no need for it now and certainly do not need a lecture from a consultant.
