"Not enough help with my ear problems"

About: Queen's Medical Centre / Ear, Nose and Throat

(as the patient),

I have been in awful pain from April with an ear infection. I do not feel I have had enough help from the NHS. I rung them up twice through the night in agony and they told me to do is see your doctor in the morning.

Waiting around in hospitals is another problem. In June they finally got me in hospital to investigate the problem. I went in at 8.00am and had to wait until midnight to get a bed. Then I was put out the next morning and they found out a part of the problem and I was in hospital for 17 days. I came out at the end of June but now I have an operation to investigate more.

I am still in awful pain. From April to August the only people who have helped me is my doctor and the staff in the Compton Acres Medical Centre. The certain doctors and their staff have been fantastic to me.
