My daughter collapsed at work and was sent to A and E by amubulance with abdominal pain. After sitting in a chair for an hour she was seen by a junior doctor who's first words were there was not anybody senior on the department to see her. He then proceeded to examine her abdomen, he did not do a internal examination, but then decided she could possibly have an ovarian cyst. He then proceeded to tell her that she should go home make an appointment at her GP's for them to arrange a urgent scan... I find this appaulling as my daughter was in great pain and the investigations he did were minimal to say the least. I feel that he should have investigated her more or even admitted her for more investigations as she was left no further forward with no answer to what had caused the pain or the collapse.
