"My visit to the hospital on 13/02/15"

About: Broomfield Hospital

I visited the hospital in great pain on the 13/02/15. I had earlier on the previous Friday 06/02/15 been to the same hospital and was quickly seen and respect and dignity was shown. All seemed to change on the 13/02/15 on my second visit. On my arrival I was quickly seen by a nurse who took me to a room to wait for a doctor. After an hour a doctor came to the door and asked if I was waiting to see a door. I told him I was. He left and only came back after one hour. He examined me and left promising to come back shortly with another doctor. I was in great pain. He disappeared. After 45 minutes I decided to drive to Cholchester General. The pain was unbearable at the time. What suprised me is that doctors were passing by looking bored with thier hands on thier back just taking a relaxing walk round. Two others were sitting at the nursing station. Not one person was ever coming to check on me all the time. I am positive what they wanted me to do was to leave as I did to seek help at another hospital.
