"A and E"

About: South Tyneside District Hospital

I had to attend A and E after an asthma attack. I hope that I never ever have to have the displeasure of visiting South Tyneside Hospital. I was treat like absolute muck… I do not come into hospital because I like it, but when your scared its just human kindness.
