"Shocking triage nurse chichester hospital"

About: St Richard's Hospital

So....my sister arrives at A&e with numbness in her arm and pain that is worsening....yet she is rudley told to go to the GP! A patient crying in emence pain and numbness, sent away without evening taking more time to see what maybe wrong! Shameful treatment....if that was something very serious then I hope you are proud of yourself! How would his nurse have felt if that was her! The staff have to much of a whatever, we see it all the time and they forget these are real people with real pain! Take a moment people...take a moment! Whoever the nurse was on duty at chichester hospital I hope you are proud of your work effort so far this morning....nice job!
