"Homophobic or prejudice Doctor"

About: University Hospital Of North Durham / General medicine

(as the patient),

I was admitted to hospital with sickness, dizzyness and low blood pressure.

I was examined and put on the Medical Admission ward.

I was put on a drip and anti-biotics for a few days. I was seen by a few doctors whom I felt none explained to me what could be wrong with me as I was very poorly.

Then a Doctor came to me and said, "I have read your file and realised that you are gay and so I have arranged for you to have a HIV test tomorrow.”

I was deeply offended about this as she did not even ask anything about me or my very long term partner of 22 years and consequent marriage.

Before I had a chance to say anything further to her, she walked away and so I ask 3 different nurses to ask her to come and see me again but she never did. I think this is outrageous and unfair.

Does anyone know whom I can make a formal complaint to?
