"Visit to A&E 10/5/16 9am"

I would like to praise the nurse who helped me with my bladder infection. They were professional, knowledgeable, patient & caring. These are the things you need from a medical person when you are in pain.

I had bladder infection, difficulty walking & standing, severe pain.

However, once I had left their care & had to wait for a cab, things were really bad. There were no chairs to sit on by front door, so I collapsed on the floor by the main door. I could not get up. People just walked past me, no one even tried to help me. I was discusted that not 1 member of the public asked me if I was ok. Why are there no seats by front door? Someone from hospital should have made sure I was ok. Discusting
