About: Fairfield General Hospital

Anything else?

rung a&e told to come down and they would see me to help me sort the problem out got their waited hours then told they could not do it has they are not qualified to do that, its unreal . they can do lumber punchers ,put drains in lung and all that sort of stuff but they cannot nick the skin and pull out an small implant which is only 2mm under the skin and stick a plaster on it. I though that e stood for emergence and that if you could not treat your self or no one else could and that you needed treatment that you go to a&e and they would help you . I must have got that wrong, what it really means is sort it out you self.
