"darwin private and public hospitals"

About: Darwin Private Hospital Royal Darwin Hospital / Emergency Department

(as the patient),

I have spend a long time in the private hospital this year with leg ulcers broken foot and bladder infection and found all the staff that treated me very good and can not find any thing wrong with the way I was treated and everybody very caring.

The public hospital emergency department I think is quite different and it was not too good and the main problem is waiting too long I had to wait 48 hours once before I got anywhere but 6 to 8 hours is normal and found the doctors I saw not very good and seem to just not listen to what I had to say. I should know bit of my condition but twice I got a very young doctor and was told I was only a layman and did not know what I talking about and they were the doctors and knew everything and could not understand why I got upset and especially I was told by 3 doctors before how I should have been treated but now at least I have a letter from a specialist to present to the doctors on how I should be treated. But once you get past the emergency department the treatment is very good and have no reason to complain

all my tests are all done in private hospital but does not have emergency department so have to go trough the public system before I get into private
