I called the 111 service who are great. They got me an appointment with northern doctors at Berwick infirmary. (I live on holy island) I go to the appointment to be told I need to go to hospital, but they would not provide transport as I am unable to drive myself there. After arranging a taxi and spending a fortune to get to hospital I was left in the waiting area for 3 hours, was told that I'd have to wait to be seen as there was a shortage in staff?
After waiting I finally see the triage nurse to be told I will have to wait another 4 hours to see the doctor. I was sent to hospital with pneumonia and was struggling to breath, I only have on lung so having pneumonia could be deadly.
When I finally seen the doctor they refused to do any tests as there wasn't allot they could do for me? I was offered any antibiotics, not even anything to get my breathing under control.
Overall I was sent to the hospital for them to not do anything to help me, I'm now back at home feeling worse than ever.
Would definetly not recommend this brand new 'state of the art' hospital.
