"Accident and Emergency"

About: Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital

Never have I been made to feel more of a nuisance in my life! The doctor dealing with me had the cheek to ask me why I felt I was an emergency and should be there, despite having given the doctors the paper from the paramedic who sent me there!

I was made to feel unimportant, patronised, and like a silly little girl for wasting their time! I would not recommend attending A&E here as you will be inform any previous medical problems you have do not exist because they didn't believe it. I have never been dealt with by such a rude doctor in all my life, it's a shame as the nurses that I encountered were all very polite and helpful!
