"Worst experience ever "

About: The Royal London Hospital

My first issue started because I am suffering with grade 2 spondylitis and was told that a nerve block injection would be the best treatment for me. I had the injection however it was incorrectly placed into my spine and has now caused a further severe pain where it was injected. So not only have I got the original pain I now have an additional pain both of which are seriously affecting my mobility. My second issue relates to attending A&E on the advice from my GP as I was suffering from severe headaches and pain inside my head for over a month. My GP sent me to A&E with a letter stating I need an urgent MRI. The nurse who I saw (yes you heard right I was only seen by a nurse not even a doctor) and they basically used the words you are fine you can go home and that you do not need a scan. I had to go back to my GP and they booked me in for a private MRI. The MRI showed that I have a brain tumour. Later on I was having seizures and was seriously ill for months and I the treatment I received was in humane and quite frankly unacceptable.

I complained to the hospital back in November 2018 and to date I still do not have any acknowledgement and response to my concerns. I am so deeply concerned for my treatment and care at this hospital that I have been left with no option but to remove my care and treatment from this hospital.
