"Bad chest infection"

About: Shropshire and Staffordshire

(as the patient),

In 2013 I had a bad chest infection. I went to doctors and gave me antibiotic tablets and steroids. The steroids upset my diabetes.

Doctor came out to see me at home. Said my right lung was clear but not left lung. I had trouble breathing then in June I had another chest infection.

So I went to doctors again. Gave me antibiotic tablets and sent me for chest x-ray. When results came back, I was sent to New Cross Hospital.

It was the one I would get in at the time. I need help with walking, which is not far.
