On the 1/6/2015 I collapsed on way home from already been discharged from the ED department,the weather was terrible with very heavy rain.By the time I was picked up by the ambulance & arrived at Derriford hospital I was soaked through to my underwear. After not been seen by anyone for about 45 mins & being left by the doctors station I asked when I would be placed in a cubicle,after another 15 mins & feeling very wet & shivering from the cold,I asked a doctor for help & if I was able to stand then their was a not wrong with me & if I didn't like it I was free to leave. I was so cold & wet & worried about getting pneumonia for the second time in a year & just getting over heart surgery that the safest place for me even though I had a head wound & had collapsed was at home. When I got home I told my wife never allow me to go to Derriford hospital ever again.The doctors I saw are so arrogant they have know compassion.
