"Appauling treatment"

About: Hillingdon Hospital / Trauma and orthopaedics

As a sufferer from a rare genetic conditions that effects the joints I am no stranger to ortho drs. My experience of Hillingdon Ortho team has been, on more than one occassion - shocking. I was humiliated and disrespected by the consultant and left nil by mouth, pregnant for 24 hours - and my consultant kept forgetting to prescribe me fluids. There was a total lack of respect and communication from Ortho team with my nurses. The hospital was filthy, probably due to how overrun the nurses were, so not only did i have to contend with my original complaints, i left the hospital with D&V, a UTI and conjunctivitis!! Utterly appalled.
