"Been waiting since Saturday"

About: The Royal London Hospital

I was transferred here (ward 3F) from St Barts on Saturday at about 7 pm for urgent plastic surgery. It is now Monday 10.00 am. I have yet to been seen by a doctor. My dressing was changed once yesterday at my request as it was hanging off. Other than that I have not been spoken to by clinical staff other than to give me my Meds.

I only expected to be in hospital one night on 20th July it is nown1st August, , and am frightened and upset by the lack of interaction or interest. I am in a sort of side ward with one other patient who speaks no English by the nurses station where it is very busy and noisy both day and night.
