"Stroke Ward - Barnsley Hospital"

About: Barnsley Hospital / General medicine

(as the patient),

I suffered a mini stroke and didn't see a doctor for 3 days. I was told there was no room on the stroke ward, so was moved to a ward with difficult patients.

I felt the care was poor from some of the nurses. Patients who seemed to need security were put next to me and I wanted to move. I asked if I could be moved and the nurses just shouted at me.

I couldn't rest in the hospital it was disgraceful. So I signed myself out and my wife and son fetched me.
