"Staff do not care or listen"

About: West Middlesex University Hospital

Anything else?

When going in to my Husband I have found him in servere pain asking for morphine but just getting ignored .Feeding tube going down windpipe also getting ignored, having to wait 8 hours before getting a exray before the tube was then removed. I was told the following day that they could not feed him by tube as he had pulled it out. I was there all the time and know this to be untrue. Asked the doctor what dosage of Pregabalin he was on as the neurolagist had upped the medication and she said she didn:t have the time to answer my question. She then had her coat on and went home
