"nurses amazing doctors uncaring"

About: Queen's Hospital, Burton Upon Trent

I was admitted twice with abdominal pains and was put on the Burton clinic. I cannot fault the nurses they were truly amazing. However the doctors just didn't want to know and discharged me twice sending me home in as much pain as when I was admitted. I am still in as much pain and have lost over a stone in weight and keep fainting due to the severity of the pain, but I will not go back and I feel that they would treat me the same again. I truly thank the nurses as I cannot fault them whatsoever.
