"Absolute rubbish!!! Was there 14 years!!!"

About: Freeman Hospital

Was there from age 14 with severe arthritis. My consultant at that time was good.They left last year and had to see the replacement Dr.

Was wrongly diagnosed with a bursae on right hip even though I continued to tell them it was agony !!! So arrogant I wasn't sent for tests to confirm it. I could not walk on right leg at all by this point. Kept phoning for some help and the Dr got me removed from the freeman hospital and was told off the very rude receptionist not to phone again they won't be deing with me anymore!!! Was fine here for 13 years remember. Before they took over. Was forced to Morpeth and had tests. Turns out I never had a bursar. Ever. Mri confirmed that. Turns out there was massive inflammation around the hip which they are still battling to control. Been unable to walk for a year and s half! Totally housebound due to the useless Dr!!!!
