I have had severe dental/facial pain all weekend. Both the doctors and dentist have no out of hours care except a message to dial 111.
111 is uselss regarding this matter as they will only help if you have bleeding or swelling. I visited the a&e because i was/am in severe pain. I was expecting to have strong painkillers or antibiotics. I cannot eat or sleep properly. All staff were unfailingly rude and obnoxious. The triage nurse said i should not be bothering them and I should have gone to dentist or doctor. I replied they are closed today (Bank Holiday) but they rudely and incorrectly insisted otherwise. I walked out at this point due to staff rudeness and will now have to suffer until tomorrow. I have diabetes so any possible infection should be dealt with promptly. Your staff need some serious retraining.
