"I should have had a home visit sooner"

About: Hull Teaching PCT

(as the patient),

I have been in my bed for the last 3 weeks because no doctor would call out to the house.

So this week i had to crawl out my bed and get a taxi to the doctors the doc says it was a chest infection. I still didn't feel any better few days later and went back to docs. This time seen a different doc and this time was admitted to hospital

I have pleurisy and a chest infection. If a home visit was done at the start i wouldn't be this bad. I had to go to Scotland at xmas to get treated for the same thing which is out of order.
