"Out of hours doctor brought in for cover"

About: Arrowe Park Hospital

My daughter has been a patient many times in the past 18 months at this hospital, but was never treated like this before by a doctor in the out of hours dept. the doctor was rude and suspicious towards her. He basically stated she shouldn't have left it too late to attend and never really explained why he discharged her with no new medication and left her puzzling over the diagnosis of suspected peritonitis. There should be a appt for her to see Neurology in the post soon. Why? When? What? Disbelief and mistrust? We've been down this road before as she has had this before and ended up in ICU 13 months ago, im sure that this diagnosis should have been investigated more while my daughter had a short stay in hospital but she was sent home early hours this morning. She's also expecting her second child in December this yr. I just hope we get to December in one piece. Thankyou for reading this. Disgusting doctors. Absolute disgrace.
