"I went to A&E three times ..."

About: University Hospital (Coventry)

(as the patient),

What I liked

I went to A&E three times in a week and was eventually wrongly diagnosed with an illness that usually only affected the elderly. I'm in my 40's. They put me on medication which caused me problems, and I had to bring myself off them gradually. I even had to stay in hospital and put up with the most awful hospital food I have ever tasted. But that is a minor issue compared to the time taken to organise scans etc. I moved to coventry from an area where we have an excellent health service. Maybe I've been spoiled!
