"Arrogant Uncaring Staff."

About: Spire Roding Hospital

NHS acute back pain referral form GP, arrogant specialist who decided to go on holiday instead of outlining a course of action. Despite formal complaint and numerous call to hospital by patient and GP, patient ended up being rushed to A&E twice and eventually diagnosed with growth on spine (awaits test for Cancer/TB). Specialist refused to talk to patients, several weeks later awaits outcome of complaint. Would not recommend this hospital.
