"my vist to a and e"

About: Horton General Hospital

visted a and e as I was having breathing problems and spasms at home spoke to 111 they then said go to a and e so I did when I got there one nurse was brilliant and the other one was okay but when they took my bloods they made me scream out as it was painful as they didn't put needle in gentle and then they moved me after doing ecg and everything and one nurse said that they were gonna get me some oxygen for my breathing and didn't and then I was sat around waiting for doctor to come for a few hours ,

I didn't get any pain relief or anything until went for x- ray and then they discharged me without any paperwork or anything and they were also talking about me to each other and I felt like i didn't want be there and everything i don't think this right as it should be confidentially information between nurses and doctors not everyone to talk about my case , I think this is very bad and unprofessional .
