Slipped-disc patient complains of appalling hospital treatment
4:00pm Wednesday 9th January 2013 in News
A TEENAGER left needing a zimmer frame after a freak back injury has complained about hospital staff.
Samantha Spiers, 19, collapsed in agony at home after standing up too fast and slipping discs a week before Christmas.
She is now recovering but said Colchester General Hospital staff were rude, ignorant and left her in agony for hours.
The hospital have apologised.
