About: Barnsley Hospital

GP consulted Neurosurgeon and advised me to attend hospital for CT scan and bed booked as GP believed minor stroke and needed ct to confirm. Spent normal 4hrs on trolley. Dr came and said he had checked ct scan from 2 months ago and all ok. Advised that episode was previous day but didn't wish to know. Nurse advised if further symptoms re attend and was surprised that I said I would not wish to be treated in a place that had just told me I was ok. Still have tightness in chest but will not go back unless forced to
