About: South Tyneside District Hospital

I go to hospital quite a lot as I got uncontrolled epilepsy ,the doctors make me feel im wasting their time as they don't understand epilepsy,some of the times they don't want to admit me but my family and friends know my health better than them.when I was in a fortnight ago there was 6 people in the bay I was in the other five was asked how they were and one was asked do you feel well enough to go home or do you want to stay in another night to make sure,when the doctor came to me - he said you are not ill you can go home I said I don't feel well enough he said he needed the bed.when you see tv programmes all the doctors and nurses seem caring ,this is not true
