Anything else?

I have been having lots of pain in the lower stomach and bleeding so my gp was helpful arranged a scan and pain killers

the painkiller where not working so I visited my local A&E as instructed by the 111 service as it was out of hours sergury time.

i was treated very well but the nurses, I had a very long wait to see a doctor Evan though I was in a lot of pain. when I finally saw a doctor he asked the problem and simply replied your doctor is correct you will ned to wait for a letter in the post for an scan and offered me some more painkillers. He then waked away didn't Evan say I could go or what to do next he just moved on to the next patent. This is shocking I'm still in a lot of pain and have to live on painkillers that aren't working till some one will see me in a number of weeks. I was in a hospital full of this equipment why couldn't they use it there and then. Why do I have to wait for a letter to arrive in the post ?

I feel like no one cared for me this afternoon and if there is something's seriously wrong with me the NHS will be reciveing a formal complaint as this delay could be causing me more harm or delaying the correct treatment I need.
