"Lack of respect for doctors"

About: West Middlesex University Hospital

I went in today cos I was suffering from breathing as I have asthma. My GP has prescribed me to get treatment form this hospital, when I suffer from breathing and the nurse totally ignored my GP's decision and told me: on my informing her of this info."that's what GP do they prescribe u to come to hospital" I was shocked to my bones. I came to this hospital to be cured and not to hear her view on GP's I end up going to my friends house and using his son's nebulizer.
