"hospital from dark ages"

About: New Cross Hospital

Anything else?

I think some of the care I have received has been the worst I have had, I call for a nurse using the alarm button and it takes an hour to come to attend to me. I know they are under staffed at night but come on I only use those buttons when I really need to, My drip was being fed into tissue rather than my vein, can't even get a vein now as they are collapsed

Also being made to wait for gallbladder removal surgery, the infection I currently have is now causing problems for the surrounding organs,and I'm going to be discharged in a few days time for the whole process to start again, in agonising pain being rushed via ambulance what is the cost to the NHS for this to keep happening, the doctors, nurses, medication? All this because the consultant won't put further up her list.
