"Dri"

About: Doncaster Royal Infirmary

My dad was sent to hospital by a gp... Bearing in mind he's a terminally ill patient he was put on nil by mouth to have a procedure to investigate why he was vomiting blood... He was taken down at 3:00 pm at 6:30 he was told they might not be able to this today they eventually did the procedure but whilst he was having it done the nursing staff packed up his belongings and shipped him out to another ward which he really didn't need after 5 days in hospital as a brain tumour patient was very confusing and distressing for him we explained this to the medical team I said he couldn't be moved as it would be too much for him especially as he was leaving the next day... Discusting!
