"Medical Negligence Doctors & Receptionists"

Since 10 months doctors are playing with me and my condition is getting worst. Now I am done because everyday living in severe pain and scratching my whole body day & night which made my life miserable and my skin swelling so badly that I cry everyday. The specialist and doctors of NHS Upton Park Hospital in Slough are irresponsible. The specialist is almost 3-4 days a week off and now gone on holidays when I need him desperately. No one taking responsibility and it looks like a kinder garden, the receptionist can NOT give me any appointment with Dr Hear and any other skin specialist to see. I am waiting since 01/06/2013 till now, it is looks like no one is out there to observe what the doctors are doing in Slough hospitals and GP. I am suffering with skin infection highly bad condition and can't sleep either day or night which is affecting on mental break down.
