"NHS doctor had a bad attitude"

About: Royal Bournemouth General Hospital / General surgery

(as the patient),

I am an international student here. I felt uncomfortable for a number of days, and I decided to register with a GP on the following Monday. But I feel sudden great discomfort on Sunday Night.

I asked my warden and he gave me a NHS direct number to call, the call centre staff were very patient and polite. Finally, they arranged for me to go to A and E doctor at Bournemouth hospital.

By the time i arrived at the hospital, my symptoms felt much lessen, because it had been about four hours since i made the call.

The doctor asked me a series of questions and tested my urine, heart and stomach and said I'd got nothing and that i needed to register with the GP to have a check up. I said thank you and was going to leave.

Then i said i felt a little bit of a headache at the back of my head. They then shouted at me and said go away now, that it was none of their business. I think this person is very very rude and displays a very bad attitude.

This doctor has given me a bad impression about NHS and England as well!
