"Three times now"

About: Royal Liverpool University Dental Hospital

So I've visited the dental hospital three times now, I'm not registered to a dentist currently because I've recently moved and I am considering moving further into the city center in the next two months. On three occasions I've visited. I've been in the most horrendous pain for the past few weeks and even tried the tooth extraction myself after a few whiskeys and a jewelry pair of pliers, but to even move my mouth that wide puts me into much pain. I'm covered in tattoos....for me to say I've been in the most pain I've ever been in my life on a day to day basis, I thought they would generally understand On the three occasions I've explained my circumstances I've been handed a leaflet and have been told to leave, even on two occasions when I've had to communicate via pen and paper because it's too painful to talk verbally I'm sorry this is just a joke, how are you to determine whats serious enough if you won't even diagnose or see patients? This is honestly insane. I understand why people have given the hospital such bad reviews.
