"Skin rash"

About: Newham General Hospital

Anything else?

A woke up 2 days ago with a huge skin rash on my right cheek, I went to newham hospital desperate. I was waiting about an hour for a doctor to take a look at it. And finally they told me that they need to drill it but they don't have the specific doctor for that job there and they send me to royal London hospital without a reference or anything similar. I'm really disappointed.
