About: Addenbrooke's Hospital

I would like to say I have never felt so angry and upset by the way a doctor spoke to me and my partner at adenbrooks hospital when we came for his opperation. First of all the doctor did not explain properly what the procedure was, what they would do, and the benefits also when I asked them to repeat what they said they were very snappy and made me feel really upset. We were left in adenbrooks with no after care and no one properly came and checked if my partner was ok. So upsetting. The nurse's on the ward where very nice though.
