I am giving a second review as looking back and having visited the walk in at Accy Vic I feel the need to update my review. I left Blackburn not having seen a Doctor or without a diagnosis. After 5 days of co co codamol (what they sent me home with!)and still no better by Saturday morning I was advised by a Nurse to see a Doctor as she was concerned about my shallow breathing. Feeling a pain to bother two A and E departments in one week (never having done so in 58yrs!) I went along to Accy Vic-THANKFULLY. I was made to feel I wasn't a nuisance (as I was made to feel in Blackburn) a nurse assessed and said the Doctor needed to see me. I saw a brilliant Dr. who diagnosed Costoschrondosis a viral infection which needed anti inflammatory and paracetomol not the morphine and co co codamol which had in five days changed nothing! I am now on the road to recovery but no thanks to Blackburn A and E.
