"Examination was over the top"

About: Glenfield Hospital / Diabetic medicine Leicester Royal Infirmary / Diabetic medicine

(as the patient),

I started dealing with doctors in 2005, I had a quad heart bypass then.

About two years ago I started to pass out in the kitchen, so I went to A@E who checked me out. They then sent me to the heart hospital. A doctor who examined me. The examination was over the top and violent. The doctor also accused me of wanting to be sick and stay in hospital. I asked the police to look into this. The police told me that they had been warned about this doctor's bed side behaviour before.

Since then I will have noting to do with this hospital. but there is a twist to this story. I found out a lot later that I am diabetic. I had the same symptoms now as I had then, as soon as they realised that it was diabetes my doctor said I must have a E. C. G. I told them to stuff it because of what happened at that hospital. The only way I will ever go in to hospital again is when it becomes an emergency and I will insist on going to hospital outside my area
