"Doctor showed no care for patient"

About: Luton & Dunstable Hospital

I took a friend to L&D because of continuous headaches and very high fever, I was sent to a walk in GP who seemed more interested in what she was going to do after work as she shuffled with her scarf and removed the stems of her strawberry's. A few hours later I called 111 to be on the safe side to ask for advice as the medication given was not having any effect on the patient, turns out the medication given was completely irrelevant and should not have been prescribed. Appalling service, i would have saved so much of my time and effort if i had just called 111 before going to these called "GP".
