About: Leighton Hospital

Ive had the misfortune of being sent to A&E by my Gp or 111 several times over the last 4 months. I have been misdiagnosed on every occasion. I was ot treated at all and was chucked out everytime like a discarded potato peel. After 4 months general surgery diagnosed my condition but left it to A&E staff to write the report. Guess what they wrote All Clear. I was left with no treatment and in agony and bloodloss. My symptoms continued umtil last week i was in so much pain 111 arranged an ambulance. They gave me morphine and took me to A&E. The dr in there was extemely rude and said theres nothing wrong with you. He then chucked me out on the street. No pain relief or assessment. He then stated i would not be allowed any treatment in A&E in the future. All because the staff in a&e messed up on the report on my ct scan. Ive never been in such a terribly run place. The drs are rude and incompetant. i am now left with not being able to get the kind of pain relief needed or seek medical help i need. A full scale investigation is needed into what is going on in A&E.
