"Doctors were useless"

About: Medway Maritime Hospital

I went to A&E twice in one week as I was first advised to by a nurse, as I was suffering with a lot of pain and the nurse that told to go, was worried I was having an early miscarriage. When I got to A&E I got sent to Medocc and the person who saw me at 11:30pm (45 minutes later than the appointment) they just sent me home. Then I went a few days later after phoning 111 about the problem and they told me to go to A&E within an hour, once I got there I was yet again sent to Medocc and had to wait until 4 hours to see someone. When the Doctor saw just gave me some tablets ones which contains penicillin which I told them at the beginning I was allergic to. Now I have to go to a walk in centre, or my GP to find the correct answer as nobody at the hospital was doing proper checks for me.
