9/11/2013 ,I had very high Blood pressure. phoned up 111, the diagnosed that I should go to hospital, phoned up the Hospital and asked them If i would be wasting their time if I came down, They said no come down, I arrived their, made to pee in a bottle, then waited 2.5 hours to be told by a doctor how to live my life and advice on health, he said I have 20 people sitting out there, I can't do nothing for you, He also advised me on going private, I told him I can't pay National Insurance and also pay private, you doctors are costing too much, I told him you wasted my time and your time he blamed the NHS. My blood pressure today after taking my pill is 170/113, Hope I make it to the GP next week without getting a stroke or heart attack. I walked out while he was still talking.
