Was taken onto ward 22 where I was disturbed all night blood pressure etc. a junior doctor then came to see me and said I would be having an echo plus a 24hour tape I waited all day Sunday all day Monday nothing. I then get told I not dying I not an emergency case so it would be done as out appointment . Just lie after lie to me. I had five fits on Sunday . Tuesday after being told three different things I then had the tape fitted three o clock. Wednesday I was taken for a scan then as all was clear and they tied up the loose ends so they said I was able to go home. Thrown out the bed I had to go sit in the day room . Basicly the nurses and doctors Say it's in my head and I have to get on. The staff where not caring apart from one nurse I came out today not having blood pressure done i not eating.
