I went in because 111 asked me to go in after I reported that I had chest pain with exercise and blurred vision. The receptionist was very helpful, as was the nurse who first assessed me. Then I had a very friendly nurse who did the heart tracing. I was seen to quickly, and it looked clean. Then I saw a Female Doctor who was very unpleasant, not at all bothered, spoke to me as if I were not a human but something, and told me to go to A and E. I did not go, I decided to leave it but had I been that urgent that I must go there, how did this Doctor expect me to walk to PRUH Hospital if I were complaining of chest pain through exercise? I told her I walk everywhere, being a carer and ex army medic I deem myself very fit but because of recent chest pain and blurred vision I did not care about myself, I am on a death wish anyway, but I wanted to make sure I could still look after my mother.
