"Unprofessional doctor"

About: Lincoln County Hospital / Accident and emergency

(as the patient),

Came in after having chronic seizure and was pretty much shu'd out the door, I will never use Lincoln hospital again after this I found the doctor very poor. He offered me no advice and seemed to me to take great pleasure in telling me 'this is an accident and emergency department and having a seizure is neither an accident or an emergency'. I am absolutely disgusted.

Response from United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust

I am was very sorry to hear about your experience in the Emergency Department and apologise for this. This is not the standard of care we hope to provide.

If you are able to contact PALS (Patient Advice & Liaison Service) here at the hospital (Tel: 01522 707071) to inform them of your name, I will be able to investigate this further and provide you with a full response.

With regards,

Dr Meg Kelly
