"Non Emergency Chest Pains?"

About: Southport & Formby District General Hospital

Anything else?

I visited A&E complaining of severe chest pains, they did their routine checks, diagnosed me with something completely different, and told me I should seek further investigations from my doctor? I'm still in agony, with what I have already self diagnosed as a lung infection that requires antibiotics. I feel that I've purposefully denied the required treatment and sent away for a weekend of torture until I can get to see another medical professional. Absolutely disgusted.
