"respiratory medicine out patient clinic"

About: East Surrey Hospital

was refered to the resipiratory medicine clinic last year by another consultant at east surrey, saw the respiratory consultant in july13. Had a follow up appointment yesterday to see the resipiratory consultant got seen by his registar she had a word with him, he came in to see me and wanted me to try hypertension medication again. I came off the last lot on monday after seeing my gp and was put on my medical records under allergies to tell other doctors not to put me on hypertension meds due to side effects/making me ill and the longer that i'm on them the worse it gets. I got upset because i wasn't listened to about the meds and also i couldn't tolerate cpap ethier. He wanted me to go back on the meds and when my blood pressure was lower he wanted me to try cpap again if i wanted to. He said i can ethier see him again in 4-6 months or get discharged. I asked to be discharged as i said to him that i'm not got to waste my time coming up if all they going to do is put me on meds that make me ill/can't tolerate and not been listened to when i said it's on my medical records at my doctors surgery under allergies about not being put on hypertension meds I didn't take the prescription that was done and I made an appointment to see my gp next month
