I arrived at A&E at 12.30pm with bad chest pains and a survival card for the deadly dangerous drug I take. I saw a Staff Nurse (who was a paragon of virtue). I was given paracetamol dispite being told not to take the drug on my drug emergency card, at 0415 am I left still with a chest pain score beyond 7/10 having not seen a Doctor. I was given an ECG and blood test, the drug makes an ECG look normal and the normal test for a heart attack does not work. I rang a hospital in the Midlands and spoke to their Cardiac Team, who said we do not prescribe that drug, 'it kills the pain and also the patient'? I now have a an appointment with them at 11.00 am and a chest pain score of 5/10.
