"A&E Visit"

About: Worthing Hospital / Accident and emergency

I was seen very quickly in A & E. The triage Nurse was fantastic, however the Doctor whom I saw seemed baffled and did not follow strict national guidelines regarding the recommended treatment.

As I had done my research, I questioned the doctor about the steps needed to be taken before prescribing, the doctor brushed off my concerns and prescribed and administered the treatment.

A quick look on the NHS and Patient websites when I returned home confirmed fully that I was right and the doctor was wrong.

I shall be seeking a second opinion and will avoid attending this hospital if ever required, as this is not the first time I have had issues with Doctors refusing to acknowledge patient concerns in Worthing Hospital.
