About: Colchester General Hospital

Absolutely disgusted with the level of care I received from the Doctor on duty in A&E Minors.

To repeatedly hear "what do you want me to do about it" when referring to my severe chest pains and pain management was emotionally, physically and mentally very upsetting.

I will be making a formal complaint about the doctor, and infact the nurse attending was equally lacking compassion as they failed to even acknowledge my exsistance.

I followed my gp's advice to attend A&E again, to then be treated like a time waster and having to leave still in severe pain is unsatisfactory.

I won't ever go back. To scared to be treated the same again.
