"Treated with disrespect"

About: Queen Alexandra Hospital

Waited nearly 4 hours on a Monday afternoon after been seen by a nurse who asked ' we'll what do you want me to do about it' and ' why didn't you go to your gp' also stated ' it's not an accident or emergency' let alone I was in pain and could not sit up properly, near enough the whole of the waiting area were seen before me and I am utterly disgusted with the way I have been treated today!! I was just left sat there waiting with no one to tell me how long I would have to wait
