I attended queens AE , with a severe ongoing headache, I was seen by triage nurse who kindly gave pain relief that helped, but as my pulse was fast wanted an ECG, and blood tests, so far all ok I was then sent to majors lite , where I saw a doctor who at first was treating my headache, as I suffer from angina I do at times suffer some chest pain,
The doctor then came to me and asked if I had any chest pain, i answerd yes but was not to bad , the doctor then told me that a blood test was slightly elevated, and would have to stay a bit longer, I was sent to a ward, where I saw another doctor who told me I had suffered a minor heart attack, of course shocked by this I went along with it, 5 days later still in a ward , I was then seen by a consultant who then says that I hadn't suffered a heart attack at all, all in all I spent 8 days in hospital off work, caused worry and upset to me and my family, given drugs for the heart, an angiogram, which was all a waste of NHS resources, why isn't there some one senior to over see , I was seen by several doctors all of which said I had a heart attack , all of which was based on blood tests.
Disgraceful, and also pals haven't responded to my last two emails regards this, so what's the point in them.
