"Aintree NHS, worst hospital in UK"

About: University Hospital Aintree

I went for a consultation with a breast surgeon at Aintree NHS too get a very painful lump removed from my chest . The surgeon had an appalling attitude saying that there was nothing up with me and also that the NHS do not do these operations and that i would have too go private. The lump i have is a condition called gynecomastia and my cousin had exactly the same condition as myself and the NHS removed his lump 6 weeks ago so i know for a fact that the surgeon was lying to me and was just trying to get rid of me. I explained that the lump was extremely painful and he said he would not remove it and asked me too leave. I was extremely upset when i left, the doctor was the most unpleasant person i have ever met in my life.
