my husband had a stroke in oct 2013. all the nursing staff in casualty and the stroke ward were brilliant. but the doctors were terrible in casualty,there seemed to be a lack of interest trying to diagnose what was wrong with my husband, and suggested without any examination what so ever that my husband had vertigo, and would prescribe some tablets and send him home . however this would not be possible as he could not walk. it was when the next doctor came on duty, that he discovered that he had had a stroke. since then a few weeks ago my daughter was rushed to casualty with burns. ,and again all the staff were brilliant including the paramedics, but the doctors were extremely rude and uncaring, to the point of the nurses apologising for them. in our opinion these doctors need some lessons in people skills.
