"Never going into walk in again"

I went with chest pains. The nurse was stand offish I felt like I was putting them out.

They said why have you not phoned a ambulance? We are not here for this, i cannot do much for you all can do is put you on a machine and send you to hospital.the delivery of their words cold and very distant

With that I stood up and told them that I did not like their attitude. There was no way I was allowing that person anywhere near me. Wow I will never go to that walk-in centre again.....if that is care ?
