"Raging toothache this hospital did nothing"

About: University Dental Hospital

Approached this hospital twice as dentist could not remove a deep root so I was left with a gaping bacteria filled hole in my gum and in immense pain even after a week on amoxicillin and metronidazole this hospital refused to treat this as an emergency / urgent process. Even when approached through Stockport A&E Thank you so much I board a plane tomorrow to Cuba for 2 weeks with a raging gum and face pain and taking medication that clearly isnt touching it.

Oh and my travel insurance wont cover me as I had to declare my visit to this place.
