I went to orpington hospital today for an appoitment that I had waited well over a month for in the dermatology department.
Once there I was told there was a wait as the doctor was running late which is fair enough, unfortunately I could not wait as I had to get to work, as I was rebooking my appoitment a nurse approached me and asked if she could have a word, as I went over to the side with her she then said "I would like to give you a piece of advice next time you come in here can you not have a cigarette before hand as I am asthmatic and so is the doctor" she then went on to say "talking to you makes my chest hurt!" She then put on a voice as if she couldnt breath which is highly unacceptable!!
She also said that "the doctor is asthmatic too so it would effect her aswell" So being a smoker does that mean I am not entitled to the same care of a nonsmoker because the doctor will be effected?
After this she then told me that the doctor had asked for me to have a blood test before my next appointment I told her I can not recall the doctor asking me to have a blood test therefore I have not had one done, she then replied well its in your notes in a sarcastic voice which made me feel like a liar, her tone of voice was very patronising and her attitude was very bad.
Due to this I am now getting in contact with my local doctor so I can be admitted to another hospital as I am deeply offended
