"Rotherham hospital "

About: Rotherham Hospital / Accident and emergency

(as the patient),

First off let me say that this is not my first experienced of being treated horrendously by Rotherham Hospital. Normally I would not write a review on here but I feel this is the only way my experience may find a voice and may help someone else.

I came in to A&E with my family to report my problem after waiting 6 hours in A&E cubicle I was seen and told I would need to stay in, I was sent for an X-ray then told to wait I was there another 6 hours then sent to CDU where all the nurses where nice-ish but the doctors on the other hand were rude and made myself feel like I was wasting time and like I was a complete hypocondriac.

Mine was not the only complaint about doctors unprofessional attitudes towards patients and staff, including discussing one poor patients medical records and history in full ear shot of the ward saying some unpleasant things about this lady.

The care I received I felt was disgusting.
