I attended A&E with abdominal pain but referred back to GP services. 2 hours later I was back in A&E in extreme pain. I was admitted into the department and the nurse sorted out pain relief. I waited at least 3 hours before I was seem by the A&E Doctor.
The A&E Doctor was dismissive and made it clear they did not believe there was anything wrong with me. Fortunately a senior Doctor reviewed me and sent me for a CT Scan.
Despite the CT scan revealing I had a large abdominal mass the first A&E Doctor continued to be rude and dismissive.
I have since had surgery but was less than impressed with same of the care I received in particular the discharge arrangements are chaotic. I was sent home with nothing and told to report to my GP to have clips removed. This in fact was not correct it was the District Nurse who I needed to contact. As I had no discharge letter the District Nurse was completely unaware of what procedure I had undergone.
I had no follow up appointment and spent 2 hours on the phone trying to make one.
I would not recommend Lincoln Hospital
