"In accident and emergency I was ..."

About: Calderdale Royal Hospital

What I liked

In accident and emergency I was treated with promptly and with kindness.

What could be improved

The correct diagnosis would have helped! The consequences for me have been disastrous.

I found the doctors were very arrogant and I am (fortunately) living proof that they were not as clever as they may like to believe. They need to have enough humility to realise that they don't know everything and refer on to the larger hospitals, where more expertise is available.
