About: Conquest Hospital

My daughter was admitted to the conquest from eastbourne dgh after having to find our own way we reached the hospital at midnight. And it all went down hill from there. The nurse used her as a pin cushion trying to take blood. Wasn't told anything just they were admitting her overnight for tests o. The morning. It is now 12.44 and we haven't heard a thing. No check to how she is. No doctor. They didn't even know we had been sent for scan! No offer of food or refreshment. I've never had a bad experience at hospital until now. This is our first time at the conquest and am not impressed
