"5 hours of pain "

About: Hounslow PCT / Emergency GP out of hours service London Ambulance Service NHS Trust West Middlesex University Hospital / General surgery

(as the patient),

I called the ambulance, but after an hour still nothing. I took the cab to the hospital. Once get there I was waiting at the emergency of West Middlesex Hospital 2 hours with severe stomach pain. There was another 2 hours of treatment with gaviscon and that was it. No scan no nothing. Same at my GP the second day. He booked me for scan but it takes several months to get one. So I'm going go at a private clinic. Very nice.
