Rushed my wife in A & E at 3am with severe abdominal pain. Spent all of 4.5 hrs in seeing 3 Doctors , 1 x Houseofficer who was learning on his own and who thought surgery was an option, and also relied on a nurse to do bloods for him which didnt go down well. 1 x Senior House Officer who was very confident and dismissed this option and generated appropriate bedside manners. Finally 1 x Registrar who confirmed the SHO advice and was more interested in discharging my wife because there was only 15mins allocated time left on there computer system. Left with inconclusive findings. GP has now referred her back to hospital for further investigations. This is why NHS Is loosing money in referrals and inconsistent advice when not being dealt properly in house. Add to a worrying night with a car parking system that has you looking for loose change and remembering your car reg whilst half a sleep. On a positive note did receive a coffee from a very considerate nurse.
