About: Kent & Canterbury Hospital Kent & Canterbury Hospital Canterbury CT1 3NG
My Mother who is 73yrs old was taken to Kent and Canterbury A&E last night 2/6/2014 suffering from severe stomach pain. I live in Newcastle upon Tyne and was called by the paramedics who took her to the hospital. She arrived there around 8:30pm my mother was left to wander the unit in pain until 3am when she was given some pain relief which enabled her to settle on a bed she was then woken at 5am and asked how quickly she could leave and go home they sent her home in a taxi. My mother called me at 6am very upset and distressed she feels that once the doctor and nurses found out about her diagnosis of vascular dementia everything changed and no one was interested in the fact she was bleeding when she had a bowel movement and in severe pain. The doctor kept asking her the date time and who was prime minister.
