2 however I felt that the triage system was a tick box exercise. I was asked to describe my symptoms but was interrupted. I was informed that a BP of 190/80 was normal (not for me). A urine sample at this point would have been useful. No past medical history was taken and the nurse assessing, scored my pain of 2/3 without actually asking, it was considerably more than that. I explained that the pain had been in existence since the day before and was uncontrolled by the analgesia I had taken, the nurse then asked why I hadn't taken any on the morning I presented, which was clearly obvious. I also would not have presented at A and E if I didn't feel it was essential to do so.
I felt that the remainder of my experience was fine.
