"Hospital Feedback"

About: Blackpool Victoria Hospital

I was sent by my doctor. yet a triage nurse decided to ignore their recommendations. leaving me with the feeling they don't have a clue what there doing. I left and bought what I needed of the internet. doctors should make decisions not simple nurses
