About: North Tyneside General Hospital North Tyneside General Hospital North Shields NE29 8NH
I visited north Tyneside general hospital/ accident and emergency. I had to visit this hospital as it my local hospital. I went to A+E on Sunday 1st Feb 2015 regarding my accident that took place on Saturday 31st. When I arrived I was quite satisfied but when I was going treatment for damage done to my ankle I was not highly satisfied because the way the staff treat me. I was unable to put any pressure on my foot and I was sent home and told to carry on as normal and walk. On Monday 2nd I had rang my GP and was told to come along to the surgery when I arrived my GP told me that I should not be walking on my foot as it would be causing me more damage and I should of been giving something to walk with when I visited A+E. When I was being treated I had told the people in the A+E department that I have done something similar before and that I have joint problems. I am very unhappy about my visit to this hospital and it is not the first time I have been treated like this.
