"awful"

About: King's College Hospital (Denmark Hill)

I spent 3 days in pain bleeding uncontrollably. I called an ambulance which came and decided that I needed to go into the hospital. When I got there I was not checked to see if I was ok, I was left in my own blood for hours before they told me that someone else needed the bed. They put me on the floor in the hallway and didn't come back. I was left to drift in and out of consciousness and lose enormous amounts of blood. I wasn't even given painkillers. Every hour my waiting time increased while people who came in after me were being seen. I then had to walk home after still not being seen and was still bleeding intensely and still in excruciating pain. I don't advice you there. I'm seeing a specialist who thinks if my body has been severely affected then it will be a court proceeding.
