Newham Hospital: The Worst Hospital In The World? – No Proof Of The British Medical Establishment’s Negligence And Cover Up.
On Saturday I was admitted to Newham Hospital by a junior A&E doctor. She made the mistake of not realising I was a political hot potatoe. I attended A&E and was admitted because the state of my spine had become seriously unstable.
Four days later, having had one X ray taken (of my chest not my spine) and some routine blood tests, I have been discharged by a Dr Zanakar (I think) saying my problems were better suited to being treated as an outpatient.
I said to him that as I was admitted because of the instability in my spine, no one had X rayed it, and he was not a spinal specialist, he was not in a position to make the decision to discharge me. “You are discharged”, he said before walking away.
Newham hospital is one of the worst hospitals in the country, according to government figures, according to the patients and according to the staff who work there (just look for stories on the internet).
This isn’t the main point. The main point is that my medical situation has become dangerous. The sometimes seemingly constructive medical negligence of people such as Dr Joseph Cowan (RNOH Stanmore), Professor Parveen Kumar (Royal London) and Dr Mike Polkey (Royal Brompton) has lead to a degredation in my physical well being that now threatens my life.
I don’t want to complain about doctors. I want a body that works. It is getting less and less likely that I can be restored to health. Time is a wasting, as are my muscles, and I find it hard to come to terms with facing a pointless early death because some doctors got it wrong.
