What could be improved

Hospital was so concerned about my 18 month old daughter may have swine flu they didn't want to see her in a & e even though we had arrived in an ambulance. My daughter had fitted ( for first time)due to high temperature and they sent us home in a taxi an hour later withnot examining her. Doctor just gave her nurofen. Before getting in taxt her temperature was still 39.6. Next day she was no better so took her to doctors and she had severe tonsilitus. Had the doctor have checked her throat she could have been on penicilian alot quicker. I felt we were basically rushed out the hospital in case it was swine flu. Was very disappointed with the service.
