"Unhelpfull"

About: Milton Keynes Hospital

Anything else?

I was absolutely discusted by being refused treatment and told to go to my local hospital or GP. I have leg ulcers which needs the dressings changed every two days. I stated that I was unable to go to the Luton & Dunstable hospital or my GP in Dunstable as I am working for 10 days in Milton Keynes ,doing holiday cover and not able to leave my job for a long period. I was told to go to the emergency walk in center. they told me they did not have the dressings. I phoned 111 and was told to phone a local doctor as a temporary patient. They refused me as well. I have now gone 6 days without my dressing being changed and is beginning to smell. Discusting!!!
