"Poor treatment at Rotherham District General"

I was sent by my GP to the Rotherham District General hospital with suspected appendicitis. Upon arriving at the admissions ward (B1) I was examined by a Dr who took blood samples and arranged for x-rays. The tests showed signs of infection. I was then examined by another two Drs before being transferred to Sitwell ward. Once on the ward I was seen by a registrar who said that I would be having a laparoscopy the next day to determine the problem. After much delay, I was eventually taken to theatre for the laparoscopy (3 days after when it was initially arranged) and the problem was found to be lesions on my colon, which were removed.
I feel very angry about the way I was treated prior to going into the theatre, especially with the dismissive tone of the consultants, who acted as though they didn’t believe me when I said that I had a pain in my abdomen.
