"what is ward A5/A6 called?"

About: Queen Alexandra Hospital

Anything else?

I have just come home from being on this ward last two days. First day was spent in an examination room in agony awaiting to be seen. no pillow no blanket no pain relief no drink! went in at 9am was eventually found a room at 7. 30 that night after laying on the floor with my coat wrapped round me sobbing for hrs on end. was worst ever experience in my life! nurses tried very hard and couldnt believe docs sent me home in amount of pain i was in. have never felt so belittled and ignored in my life! am due to go in in two weeks for a lap andbasically told till wait till then as nothing medically wrong with me. as clear scan and bloods! really not wanting to go back :-(
