"i was told i had an infection ..."

About: Hexham General Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

i was told i had an infection but not given any anti inflamation medication .and i think i was given a placebo pain killer ,as it did not work .

What could be improved

doctor seemed as though he did not beleive me and seemed puzzled by symptoms,did not say what was wrong with me just an assumption what he thought it could be .
