Sent to A & E by GP after being ill for several days.
Seen by a staff nurse who said your GP should have given you Omoperazole or Lanzoperazole not sent you here.
The nurse obviously had not read my notes as I have been on this medication for years. The nurse then said all you need is a blood test! insinuating there was nothing wrong with me.
Luckly the blood test was not so bias and found there was a problem that needed further investigation.
But this experience made me feel like I was wasting the hospitals time and should not have come when directed by my GP.
This incident was witnessed by another.
