I was taken to the Hospital in Larbert, from Stirling because I felt unwell. I was put into a little side room to avoid attention. I had the usual blood pressure, blood test and heart monitor.
I was in there for 4 hours and wasn’t once asked if I wanted anything to eat or drink. I finally had to ask for a cup of tea and a sandwich.
I was then moved to an assessment ward where I stayed until about midnight—then moved back to the side room. There were no doors only curtains, the lady next to me coughed all night and the two patients next to her were snoring. The nurse’s room was right next to me, I could hear every word they were saying. The phone went all night looking for beds—I hardly slept a wink.
You build a lovely hospital with all the latest equipment, but I hope I never have to go back in, it was a nightmare, for me
