"Mouth, Throat, Chest pain"

About: John Radcliffe Hospital / Accident and emergency

I have been sent to the hospital 3 times in the two weeks and a half due to not being able to eat for several days, I have choked on food and even turned up to the hospital with food not going down, after 3 hours of waiting I manage to swallow that caused great pain in my chest they simply felt my throat did not even look in my mouth or throat and sent me home each time, I even turned up feeling very dizzy and felt like I was going to pass out I waited 7 hours without being seen when I was seen I was sent home!

I have now been 7 days without food with alot of plenty complications including shortness of breath, serve throat pain and discomfort

I have now been to a private doctor who diagnosed me with oral thrush this is now in a bad condition because this place could not simply diagnose something that would of been a simple cure
