I presented myself to A&E this morning struggling with an ongoing foot pain that had developed a week ago. After seeing a lovely triage nurse I then waited an hour to be seen by a doctor. She knew exactly what the problem was but she made me feel like I'd wasted her time because it was a common issue that I was experiencing (obviously I had no idea what the problem was). She made me feel like my pain was very insignificant and that I had wasted her time, despite the fact that I was in a lot of pain and struggling to walk. She brushed me off with advice about taking painkillers and sent me on my way. I feel like I wasted an hour of my time for nothing, I'm still struggling to walk following her advice and I shall not be recommending this hospital to my friends/family in the future.
