my late husband was treated in this hell hole he was dying of cancer the oncolagy department were uncaring he sat for hours on end having chemo with no one to talk to and was treated like a number not a human being .They kept him waiting for hours to get precriptions because there was no doctor to sign them .He was hard of hearing but they treated him as though he was daft because he could not wear his hearing aid and always make out what they were saying .The receptionwas a joke and the staff so rude how they keep their jobs i really dont know .This was a very sad time in our life and to be finaly told there wes nothing more could be done for him was the hardest thing in our life but to be told by a doctor who wassitting on the bench ment for patients swinging her legs said it all about this hospital thay just dont care .The story goes on but it wont change any thing and this hospital does not care a dam all i will say is if you are ill or any of your family dont go there travel if you have to but i am sure were ever you go it will be an improvement on the p d h
