"Doctors not on same paige"

About: Medway Maritime Hospital

Sent in by my own doctor, have had chest infection for over three weeks but has been on and off for two months. go straight to amu lister ward and assed blood taken then X-Ray saw a doc who I have seen before and listen. he said that there was a shadow on lungs and he was putting me on antboics injections for 48hours and to see lung specialist to find why it keeps happening. Overnight waiting on trolley nurses then say no beds in any wards in hospital so they put the whole ward on beds ,finally just get told where I am going, when a new doctor comes over to tell me I am going home with the same antboics I have been on before I came and no seeking the the lung specialist. feel like they have no beds so go home. have got no faith in this place .
