"Emergency department"

About: North Manchester General Hospital

I wait 6 hours with very bad symptoms of short breath and pressure in my head after 5 hours when i ask when dr will see me staff was said that they are busy and they are short of staff and maybe it will be more 2 hours.....my baby was at home so i was stress out. I was think at least i will get help but after waiting total of 6 hours dr said i am able to go home and healthy is just my backbone what giving me this symptoms ,symptoms about the doctor was mistaken ........the doctor send me to home without medicine.....

After i found out it was sinusitis infection after tooth extraction ......and i was mention i had extraction of the tooth to this dr. Anyway i think is unacceptable that the doctor send me home without any help after waiting total of 6 hours. The doctor don't even make any blood test .....just send me home....nurses was also rude and say if i dont want wait i can sign paper that i dont want help and can go help....and when i refused they said that they will sign it for theyself.....i wonder do i will go ever to this hospital for any help.....
