"Poor care"

About: Stoke Mandeville Hospital

My son was taken via ambulance to sm with febrial convulsions. He had been unwell for about a month already had abs which improved him but became unwell again. He had an awful cough and was not responding to calpol and ibruprofen. I was sent away twice after a poor examination saying that he had a virus. The second doctor told us that we were lucky that they even checked his urine because of he had seen us first he wouldn't have even nothered(this was apparently the A&E registrar). At no point was he seen by a paed doctor. He continued to get worse over the next day so we had to take him to a private Hosp where he was diagnosed with a chest infection. He improved within 24 hrs and was a different child. The worst and most appalling care ever sling with bad attitudes.
