"In A&E, I was given painkillers and told to turn..."

About: Chelsea & Westminster Hospital

I went in with my lower abdominal pain and I was given painkillers and told to turn private, they didn't have time for me. Specially because the pain has been there for 2 years. Even it has got strong now and doesn't stop, I can't sleep I'm off work all the time. GP's referral takes months to get, I don't understand why I'm paying my taxes. Disgusting. I was in shock after being so coldly turned down, I don't have the money to go private. I was there 28.05.14 evening.
