I went to A and E with a really bad UTI. Certainly, everyone with whom I came into contact were professional, caring etc. But, they left me in agony without any pain relief. I was discharged after intravenous antibiotics without any painkillers. As a result, I had to contact the out ouf hours emergency service for pain relief which was given without hesitation. Just because people do not scream/shout, behave aggressively or abuse staff doesn't mean they are not in pain.
