"Not a good experience of Margate A&E"

About: Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother Hospital / Accident and emergency

(as the patient),

Was rushed in due to a lot of abdominal pain. Whilst in A&E, I was given pain relief and told to wait for a ultrasound.

I waited 3 and a half hours and was told not to eat, only to then be told they couldn't accommodate me and I could go home. No one gave me advice on what to take for my chronic pain.

The drs and nurses seemed to not really care and some were quite rude. It was not a very good experience.
