"Time wasters"

About: Pinderfields General Hospital / Urology

Was asked to go to pinderfields from pontefract within a matter of hours as i seemed to have a server condition, went and was told to wait 2 hours for a blood test then told to go back the next day. Returned and was waiting 1.5 hrs for a 6 min chat with a doctor who told me that i was only going to be monitored over the coming months as they were not sure how important the condition was and because i could take paracetamol that i would not need anything at the moment, complete waste of time and lacked any kind of information as to what is actually wrong with me, now i am waiting to see if there is a doctor who can tell me weather i need serious medical treatment or if i can just get on with things as normal. Would not like to spend another appointment wondering if the doctors have actually looked at my notes ir if i am just taking up their time
