"Dr's in A&E"

About: Poole General Hospital

Anything else?

I went to A&E with chest pains after being informed to by the out of hours NHS GP who wanted me to go to A&E so much they called an ambulance. When i finally saw a Dr, i understood that it was a busy day but he shouted at me and said " why dont you just take pain killers and stop wasting our time". I was outraged by this that i had to ask to see another Dr, but as it was busy this was unable to happen, so i was sent home again. The pain lasted for over a week, with no outcome as to what was wrong with me.
