After visiting the hospital on three consecutive days before being admitted I can only warn people of the lack of care offered at this hospital. On the first day ( Saturday 11th July) I was directed into the walk in clinic and prescribed laxatives for what was an obviously painful stomach and sent home. By 5am on Sunday morning I was in so much pain I was taken back to the hospital where I was pumped full of morphine for the pain, x-rayed and sent home in a groggy condition dues to the drugs with no other help offered. By the next morning I was in even more pain and was taken to my local GP who immediately called an ambulance to return me to hospital. On admission I was once more given morphine and moved to a urology ward where during the two days I endured there I was graced with a less than two minutes passing of a doctor and an even less time spent on an utrasound test that was never acted upon while I was there. To add insult to injury I was not allowed to rest in the middle of the night as the staff showed no care in the noise they made and how they shocked you awake even though you were not being attended to. I walked out of the ward at 2.30 am and arranged to be picked up at 5am after discharging myself from a nursing official that obviously only made choices only to suit themselves. I have now made arrangements to consult a specialist elsewhere and will never return to this place.
