"rude triage nurse and team"

About: King George Hospital

I have recently been experiencing severe health problems and the real does not take me seriously. they treat me like I'm crazy and condescend to me. I have been having angina like pains for 2 months and it's getting worse. the doctors don't even consult with me and ask about my worsening symptoms. they won't let me tell them I'm concerned I have unstable angina and would like to be admitted to the CCU. they wouldn't do an ECG it blood pressure reading when I was having severe symptoms and I was told to wait. general rudeness bordering onto medical negligence. very disatisfied. seems like they just can't be bothered with me. very annoyed , frustrated and appalled . why can't they refer me to cardiology ?
