"i found the surgeons/doctors imcompetent..."

About: Kettering General Hospital

Anything else?

i found the surgeons/doctors imcompetent, and the Nurses in some cases abusive.

I went in for a simple operation and had to stop a week because of complications.

At the end it was stated by a nurse that i did not look ill,therby insinuating that i was faking my ongoing problems i then discharged my self

i was so distresed at this coment that i did not stop for medication and i am now very uncomfortable allso my ongoing health problems are increasing severe diohreea and spliting headaches.
