About: William Harvey Hospital

I felt invisible from start to finish no-one introduced themselves explained what had happened or my prognosis the consultant talked at me without examining me the physio handedness crutch and shoved me in the back. No-one asked me how I was till the day I was shoved in a wheelchair with my belongings piled on top of me at which point I said I am not happy. The sister said I should have said earlier at which point I lost it as I am in a lot of pain with several broken bones severe bruising which none of the staff seemed to get .
