"SAU ward"

About: Medway Maritime Hospital

I spent about 6 hours here after been sent by my GP. I was sent for X-ray and ultra sound because I had abdominal pains I was moved around from beds on the ward to private rooms to the waiting area! I found a label with my full name and D.O.B in a room on the side next to the skink in a random room I got sent to! I was seen by the consultant with about 8 Junior doctors with out any warning or permission also the consultant was very rude! All my results from bloods and scans left sitting on the side for about 4 hours! Got sent home all clear but still had sharp pains, they want to do a CT scan been 2 weeks still waiting for appointment still in pain doctors want to wait for scan before they give any tablets, so just sit and wait in pain shall I Also the nurse in charge that day was very rude! I quote her exact words I heard was I'm gonna get rid of him now! And removal of my cannula was just so unprofessional!The tape yanked off with all my hair attached to it rude rude very rude!
