"Incompatence of A & E"

About: Wharfedale Hospital

Generally this Hospital is top class, can't fault it, it's such a shame that you get odd person in A & E that thinks they are God and can pick and choose who they see first. A nurse Wednesday 29/07/15 When I asked why I'm being passed by, the good old answer of your next is given..Patients are treated as if they are stupid or with contempt .
