"Terrible time at Pinderfields Hospital"

About: Pinderfields General Hospital / Colorectal surgery

(as the patient),

I had a terrible time while receiving treatment for colon problems at Pinderfields Hospital, staying on Wards G and M. When I was admitted I felt the doctors I saw did little to help me. I was kept waiting for tests, and I did not know what was happening. No one told me why I was waiting and when they would run tests to find out what was wrong. The nursing staff were kind, but did not help me when I wanted more information. Eventually a surgeon came and told off the other doctors for keeping me waiting. The operation I received was successful at first, but then I got an infection.

The standard of cleanliness that I saw in the hospital was very poor. I felt the whole place was dirty.

I would never ever go back to Pinderfields. I would rather travel anywhere to get to any other hospital.
