"Unhelpful staff"

About: Chorley & South Ribble Hospital

Wife was sent to the A/E dept due to the fact she was suffering from very bad chest pains, and numbness in her arm, waited over three hours to finally see a doctor who was rude and took some bloods out, had to then wait for the results my wife had been given no pain medication what so ever and was in pain all the time. Chorley A/ E not very great at patient care at all no need for rude doctors in my opinion they are in the wrong job if they have no concern or wellbeing for patients.
