Went in by recommendation of 111 due to chest pains and raised blood pressure. Upon entering Glenfield hospital I was given an ECG and blood test which after 3 hours still received no results or contact. I was then given a chest x-Ray again no results given. Not helpful for someone potentially having respiratory or heart problems! I then had to self discharge and call up to be given my results very vaguely which didn't really help and told that I was a low priority. Why keep me in if I am low priority? Also my GP won't be given any results as I self discharged. I can't afford to park all day as I live on the opposite side of the city and I am unfortunately not well off. I would rather wait till something is serious and call an ambulance. I bet I could be buried quicker than the doctors could see me at Glenfield Hospital. Would genuinely rather get seriously ill than go back.
