"Disgusting unprofessional care by a doctor"

About: Milton Keynes Hospital

Anything else?

My husband been taken to the A&E by the ambulance after collapsing at home from seveare chest pain, numb limbs and most of his body. He has a problem with his stomach and had surgery in 2011 which made it even worse. So he had to wait for ages to be given any sort of painkillers. The nurse was lovely and professional but the doctor is another story. He had trouble communicating and had no idea what he was talking about. He told my husband he can go home after giving him morfein. And when my husband said once the painkillers wear off he will be back to being g in pain again. So " lovely" doctor says to him: "when I get pain I just run until it stops"! Now my husband is at home in pain and its getting worse.
