"Unhappy with visit to A&E"

About: Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother Hospital / Accident and emergency

(as the patient),

I went to A&E with an anal abscess, and I had a letter from my GP to have the abscess cut out and that should be the end of it.

Far from it. I had junior doctors lacking backbone and another making every excuse under the sun not to do the procedure. I was told to go home and slap some ice on it. The abscess went down and came back again, anyone surprised, well I wasn't.

I feel the waiting times are abysmal too.
