"A visit to the doctors"

About: Kent & Canterbury Hospital / Accident and emergency Kent & Canterbury Hospital / Neurology

(as the patient),

After my accident, I waited in the wait area for several hours. The nurses were polite but when I finally saw a doctor they didn't even talk to me, they just spoke to the nurses.

I tried to ask a question but I was ignored.
