I attended Kings a and e with symptom s described on the NHS own website as a medical emergency. The nurse who assessed me initially was on the ball. However the GP I saw next was totally dismissive and after what I felt was a poor examination, I was told that it was not an emergency and was completely dismissed.
I went to another a and e, as I knew something was seriously wrong and sure enough. I was taken seriously, seen as a priority and admitted to hospital for a number of nights. I will never use Kings again as I simply cannot take chances with my health. I'm just glad I was smart enough to go elsewhere.
