About: Huddersfield Royal Infirmary

I arrived at HRI on a wedsnesday evening with terrible stomach pains, all doctors I had seen said sure it was appendicitis. Was admitted to SAU unit where I found staff moody and rude, she was horrible to my partner also, and felt like a burden for asking for pain relief, nurse have me morphene at 2.30am when I asked for Codiene, nurses in next shift were lovely. Told my operation would be between 8am-5pm that day. Did not go into theatre until 12am next morning. Wasn't really explained about the procedure. Theatre staff were lovely and ward 15 staff were so kind to me. All in all a stressful emotional experience for me. Female age 20.
