"apart from the unnecessary force ..."

About: Torbay Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked apart from the unnecessary force used by a clinical fellow all the other staff were gentle and considerate What could be improved? i suspect that clinical fellows who are interested in research have a different patient approach to clinicians. the one i saw in the clinic tried to wrench off my plaster cast without cutting off the white gauze wrapping. i screamed with pain and asked to be seen by someone else. the next doctor noticed how traumatised i was i suspect his research was in pain relief as he asked unnecessary questions about this. i would like to see improved training in patient care.
