I came into A+E on Sunday evening and was seen by the triage doctor and nurse who checked my blood pressure and pulse as I was experiencing, shooting like head pains along with blackouts, I explained my situation about, Neurology investigation and, functional problems relating to Neuro, I explained the Neurologist may be putting me on anti-epileptic medication, the triage doctor and nurse said NEMS at the Queens should give me some epileptic medication for my Neuro problems. I waited in the waiting area at NEMS in Queens, I was seen by the doctor who spoke to me very rude during the consultation and didn't seem they had much knowledge of the Neurological problems I suffer from, although they examined me they said I am anxious and stressed, I replied I am not and is due to my Neuro problems. When I explained that I was told I could have medication they replied in a rude manner A+E is not the place for medication and is for your doctor or Neurologist to prescribe and said, why haven't I gone to the A+E where I had my MRI. This has let me down and I am still suffering from my problems as a result of this, I came to A+E for medical attention and the right medication not to be spoke to rudely by a doctor who did not seem to understand my problems. Hopefully in future I won't have to be seen by NEMS.
