"Rude doctor"

About: North Middlesex Hospital

My friend attempted suicide was taken to north middlesex hospital she was taken there by force, once we arrived a paramedic was explaining the situation to one of the doctors, me and the paramedic was absolutely shocked when the doctor said "why the hell did she come here if she wants to die" How rude! that is no way to treat a patient who wants to end her life.. disgusting

I apologise. I'm head of A&E services, can you please email me at gcarter-sandy@nhs.net and let me have some further details such as the doctor's name (if possible), the date and time you visited so that I can take appropriate action. Many thanks.
