"Useless and not especially helpful especially if..."

About: William Harvey Hospital

What I liked

The nurse was very friendly and helpful.

What could be improved

The doctor could have listened to the patient and didn't seem particularly interested in his symptoms. The doctor just gave out a prescription for pain relief which I told them no longer worked. The answer: just try it again. Seems like they don't care if you are in pain, just get you out of A&E as quick as possible
