I recently went up to the Jr Hospital in Oxford. I cannot remember the name of the nurse but I shall find it and make an official complaint.
I went to the outpatients area to see the doctor because I had a suspected slight dislocation in my shoulder. I sat there for 10 minutes telling them how i suffer with my shoulders but i had never felt this pain before and it was intense, i had pins and needles in my hands. They told me to take pain killers, i asked them what about the pain in my joint, they said they don’t know and to be honest it's a saturday and even if they wanted to help me nobody could because it was a saturday.
I didn't realise that i pay national insurance for a 9-5, 5 day NHS!
I was so appalled and last night my condition worsened and i was having problems walking. I was so distraught when i left the hospital that not even a place full of doctors and what-not would help me.
