"Out-patients Appointment Heart Doctor"

About: Orpington Hospital

Anything else?

Arrived for my out-patients Appointment on Wednesday 8th 2013 told nurse that I was here for my appointment, I told nurse that I have Autism, as they kept making fun out of me for where my sun glasses saying things like its not sunny today but the weekend will be nice and sunny, I where my sun Glasses because of lights in the hospital are to bright & give me Migraines.

I was then taken into side room and man handle by 2 nurses in my wheel chair on to the weighing machine then freaking me out grabbing my arms to pull me out of my chair, then told me & Carer I had to get on bed so they could do ECG as my Blood Pressure was 213 / 158 was told after waiting an hour to see my regular Doctor of 4 years that he had gone & I would be seeing someone else, freaking me out again.

This appointment was changed twice before then they said they could not find my bloods and the nurse was being so rude to me I felt bullied & Abused I tried to ask questions about my health and that I was still getting breathlessness and weak the Doctor and Nurse just kept tutting & huffing as I was the last to be seen.

It's was so horrible & nasty Day life is hard enough for me with out being treated like that on my Appointment
