Been treat for the illness you have attended the hospital for.

No examination been carried out

Respect and understanding

Anything else?

I went into wansbeck because I had very severe pain in my stomach and had very loose bowel movements since early hours of the morning. It took several attempts to get a cannular into my vains to give me pain relief. I was sent for a chest xray. they took some blood. and sent me home saying I had a bad bout of gasteranteritis. No examination took place. I was diagnosed with a tumor in my kidneys about 4 weeks ago. A chest scan was needed as I have C A D and they needed to see if the anethsetic would be a problem with my breathing problems. I now have to wait until the 7th to see a nurse specialist at the Freeman. And then admitted on the 18th. Although my G,P has suggested other health problems should be checked out, I have had no further investigations regarding this.

This hospital is a disgrace.
