Top Glasgow lawyer Aamer Anwar took to social media to criticise the hospital treatment of his 82-year-old father. 

In a heartbreaking post on Twitter, the lawyer said his father had nearly died due to a fall and was hospitalised in Liverpool. 

The 82-year-old with dementia was reportedly left alone for hours in "in his urine and faeces" in the Royal Liverpool University Hospital. 

Aamer Anwar's 71-year-old mother was forced to clean and feed him on her own without any help from hospital staff or auxiliaries.

The University of Glasgow rector also confirmed on social media that the fall had resulted in two broken bones in the 82-year-old's pelvis. 

Shocked by the conditions, people responded to the post calling the incident "unacceptable". 

One Twitter user said: "This is awful. No excuse for someone who has fallen to be left for hours like this, or for family to have to wash them."
