"Left feeling empty"

About: Colchester General Hospital

I had an appointment at the haematology unit today and left feeling very low. The Doctor didn't seem particularly interested or competent and half way through my appointment I realised I wasn't getting anywhere and waited until they stopped speaking so I could leave.

I was given a lecture about how expensive my medicine was. The Doctor has no idea that I have resorted to privately funding scans and consultations as the team at Colchester have proved incompetent and uncaring.

I've been discharged from there "care".

I feel totally let down.
