About time!
This hospital has got to be the worst in the county, the food is not fit for human consumption, half of the staff cant be bothered to do the job they are paid to do, and the doctors are incompetent too!

I am currently involved in a SERIOUS complaint regarding forged patient notes, wrong drugs being given and no discharge letter being sent to local doctors for a follow up, oh and after being sent home, being back in the hospital within 36 hours and staying there for over a MONTH!!!
