I was taken into A and E after I phoned 111 was recal bleeding and being sick, once I got there, the care was awful! the doctor told me " to suck it up " the nurses were lovely and made me feel safe, but the doctor was just awful! The doctor opened the curtain to my room when I was half naked?! They shouldn't do this job if they don't know how to do basic empathy! I felt really let down by the system. Maybe they were tired or had a bad day! They told me I wasn't an emergency and to go home. I asked for pain relief to which they told me I " couldn't have " as they didn't class me as " in pain " I also had a nurse who was really rude and basically ripped the needle out my arm. I was taken in as someone else in the system thought I should be seen, but all I got was a ward full of nurses seeing me half naked because of this doctors attitude!
