I was sent to the A&E department at 9pm with a suspected DVT in my leg, after sitting there for 4 hours they took bloods and sent me home saying they doubted anything was wrong with me but to return for a scan the next day. When I went for a scan in the DVT clinic the next day, they sent me home as "no appointment was available for a scan" and said I had to return tomorrow giving me heparin to inject "just in case it was a blood clot". I returned the following day for a scan and I did have a blood clot in my knee - this is a life threatening illness !! this service was useless and dangerous. I will go to Kettering next time.
