"A&E"

About: Whipps Cross University Hospital

Unfortunately I had yet again make a trip to A&E with a flare-up of diverticular disease. To say I was treated flippantly is an understatement, the doctor I saw made me feel I was wasting his time and was very dismissive of the pain I was in. I can only think it was because I'm a 67yr old lady with a bowel disease so what can I expect? We all get old it'll happen to the doctor who treated me!!
