I developed a really bad cough which my GP had supposedly diagnosed as Bronchitis. A few days later I had to attend the Urgent Care Center at chase farm hospital which they said it was my asthma starting back up again. Was put on a nebuliser twice. A couple days later had to attend A&E at Barnet. Was sent for an x ray which came back clear. Waited 4 hours which was the time stated when i arrived and then was thobbed off with more antibiotics. After my antibiotics finished I visited the respiratory consultant who then informed to stop taking the antibiotics as they were a waste of time and to go back to my GP for a sputum test. Eventually had this done which came back as an bacterial infection which I most likely acquired through the hospital. Was given more antibiotics which has supposedly helped. Overall would of liked if the staff members in A&E showed more enthusiasm to find out the cause of my symptoms even though they were very friendly and ensured i was comfortable throughout my time spent in the hospital waiting. I would still visit the hospital if i needed to in the future.
