"what a sham"

About: Royal Sussex County Hospital / Cardiology

(as the patient),

After having several episodes of chest pain causing me to have to attend A&E. Being told by several Drs there is nothing wrong with me. Advising me to take some antacid tablets or paracetamol. Even told by one very helpful Dr to avoid spicy food and tomatoes and that I should do this first before calling an ambulance and coming to A&E for this eppigastric pain.

Two days later I found myself being airlifted in a helicopter off the Isle of Wight to the Queen Alexandra in Portsmouth. Rushed to theatre for an emergency stent.
