"Wait time too long.. treated as if I don't mattee"

About: Buxton Hospital

Nurse practitioner was very sarcastic and condescending. I clearly had tonsillitis and a high temperature and they refused to give me antibiotics.. after waiting for them to see me for nearly 20 minutes when no one went in or out while I was there. Absolute joke.. this is not what I expect from the NHS.
