I was taken by ambulance to Lincoln County hospital. the paramedics were excellent. assessed my pains as gastro based not heart. initial assessment at hospital provided pain relief, relaxant and anti emetic. bloods were taken urine sample supplied and chest xray arranged. Dr required more bloods as previous blood was spoiled. Asked for urine sample and offered chest xray that had already been done. I concluded that staff don't work together sharing their findings. Dr made diagnosis by exclusion but did not proceed to making a diagnosis. I am being treated for symptoms yet again and last time it was so wrong I nearly lost my life. The people I saw were pleasant and caring but I think they are over worked by process. I don't think the service is joined up never mind seem less. I think that sticking to the NICE guidelines is stifling professional people and costing money as they are not being allowed to get things right.
