"Appalling. Never again."

About: Royal Hallamshire Hospital

I'm sat waiting to be seen by a doctor still, I've been here since this morning and it is now 5:07pm.

They've shoved me in a room on my own, no food, no water, no company, they've left me heavily bleeding from when I was brought in by an ambulance and I have t heard anything since.

I'm considering just getting out of this place and taking my chances.

Absolutely ridiculous. If I was someone who had friends or family with life threatening things, I'd rather go to the Northern General and not this Hallamshire because it's awful.
