"A&E: a waste of a journey"
Posted by recluse57 (as ),
I arrived at A&E early in the morning with breathing difficulties. I had blood pressure taken then to cubicle. ECG machine was faulty. The doctor came, but had the wrong address/date of birth/employment details. I told him I was under investigation with a doctor. The man then went away and on return informed me I was c o p d as an x smoker and should go and work out a plan with my gp. So I left still with breathing problems and no treatment, then had to wait for my gp to open, who prescribed me with a c o p d inhaler which has had an immediate effect. I also wrote to DR man again so I find that the A&E experience a total waste of a journey and expense for the car park.
