"nothing really, came in at 1am ..."

About: Salford Royal

(as the patient),

What I liked

nothing really, came in at 1am with my pregnant fiacnee with chest pains, they told me it was musuclar pain, i told them it cleary wasen't as i'm a trainee professional boxer, two doctors both said muscle pain ive differd with both doctors and went back to A&E because i wanted a chest xray i was disgusted with the level of care, i got told i would have to rebook in, so i did and waited 5 hours and still no xray, nothing for pain. two days later when i get rushed in with chest pains ohhh then its pnewmonia followed by bronchiectasis which caused by the delay in not detecting it earlier.

the look on the doctors face he knew he messed up.

What could be improved

it could be improved by, Not having people who dont care working late hours,

Cleaning the blood stain floors,

Doctors doing to much paper work

Making police officers cups of teas

And nurses singing and dancing on beds outside a&e rooms.


Anything else?

Yeah they are very rude & i dont want my fiancee to have our baby there, i am suprised it hasen't been closed down for its lack in hygiene
