I came to the A&E department following being quite unwell over the last few days, visiting A&E was my last resort as I had already been in contact with 111 and been to visit my GP. I was made to feel like I shouldn't have been there and that my problems couldn't be dealt with, which I was very surprised at as I described how I'd been feeling and what symptoms I had been experiencing, I wasn't examined which I felt I should've been due to the pains I had been experiencing! I think doctor was very unhelpful and didn't really care for my health at all. I as an NHS professional wouldn't have gone to A&E if I didn't feel it necessary, and all I was offered was antibiotics and told to take pain relief! I believe this is why people are so hesitant to see their GPs and go to A&E departments as they are made to feel like they are wasting professionals time! I'm very disappointment in the 'care' I received and will not be visiting this A&E department again unless it's a life or death situation! I don't agree that unless you are brought in my ambulance it's not an emergency, you cannot make a judgement on someone's Heath by taking one inital look at them, I think that is completely wrong and isn't how the NHS professionals should operate.
