"Junior doctor misdiagnosed my condition"

About: Barnet General Hospital

I was seen by a junior doctor who was so sure I didn't have another infected haematoma near the liver. The doctor told me to go back to my GP and make an appointment for a CT Scan. I was in pain with a temperature and that's why I went to A&E. God knows if I wasn't persistent on a second opinion as it was proven that I was correct. I was admitted for one week in CDU with specialist drainage. This doctor certainly needs more training and guidance. I was shocked to hear they are going to be a consultant soon. God help us all. I was so very angry as if I would have gone home, who knows the outcome to my condition.
