"UCC waste time"

About: Rochdale Infirmary

I had to visit the urgent care centre with severe abdominal pain and a swelling in my right side (near my fallopian tube) after explaining to triage that I had not had a menstrual cycle since January and that had been admitted to Oldham last year with a burst ovarian cyst I was sent to sit back in the waiting room for 3 hours got took to a cubicle waited another 10 mins still crying with the pain when a doctor comes in says I was there with D n V when I corrected them and explained they told me to go see my own gp as it would need further examination under Gynaecological surgeons which would mean admission to hospital that my gp would have to arrange, the doctor then gave me some anti sickness meds and sent me on my way....so still no clearer as to what is wrong
