"Very scarey place"

About: Gloucestershire Royal Hospital

Admitted via 999 call for Chest pains, On arrival was put into a bay and left for about 40 minutes, Not good with chest pains Tried to explain had serious underlying Cardiac condition. They doubted every word. I have a very important device fitted internally to my heart, the Dr said "what did you say that Thingamybob in your chest was" I was then told we have done a blood test at 9,30 and we need to redo it 6 hours later, to check if Heart was the problem, Great what blood test did not arrive at Hospital until after 12 miday.. So after another 30 mins of being ignored and in pain, Walked out got Taxi home, Where even with pain I felt safer,
