"Shocking dismissal of a young women in pain"

About: Royal Cornwall Hospital (Treliske)

For the 3rd time in 3 weeks, took a young friend to Treliske with severe pains in her pelvis. She has been told she needs an urgent laporoscopy and hysteroscopy. Had to take her to A&E because she was passing out with pain and her morphine was not touching it. 3 times we were sent home. This evening was atrocious - a so called doctor refused to accept a diagnosis from a much more qualified consultant, saying a growth on an overy would not be causing pain and that there was nothing to be done. Pathetic!
