"I am disgusted by my partner's treatment"

About: Scunthorpe General Hospital / Gynaecology

(as a relative),

My partner was in terrible pain, I took her to Scunthorpe General A&E they examined her and then took her to ward 28, she was left sat in a chair, after 8 hours she telephoned me because nobody had been to see her, she was in pain and tired and wanted me to collect her, I did. Then next day still in bad pain I took her back, she was admitted to ward 28.

For three days she sat in a hospital bed, on ther third day a doctor came to see her and told her they were too busy to get an MRI and discharged her telling her she was just constipated. It took another two months to get her an MRI, she actually had ovarian cancer and died a year later.

I'm disgusted by her treatment
