"refusal of treatment"

About: University Hospital (Coventry)

Anything else?

Over a four week period I was sent to hospital twice by out of hours doctors with groin and stomach pain,on both occasions I was told by the doctors I needed a scan and they put this in writing to the A and E staff doctors. On both occasions I was told this would have to be done as an out patient and I was sent home. I am in pain getting worse and very upset with my treatment...I was told by another patient that the hospital was full and this is common practice at weekends.They also found I have a heart defect and said I need to see my doctor for an appointment to see a heart specialist.....As long as your blood test shows nothing they send you home,
