"I was in hospital on Tuesday coughing up..."

About: Central Middlesex Hospital

What I liked

I was in hospital on Tuesday coughing up blood. After over 2 hours waiting the doctor told me I am absolutely fine with just a bit of flu. She told me to get myself paracetamol drink heaps of fluids and rest. My GP next day diagnose me with Pneumonia. Nice one doc.

What could be improved

She should check me properly.

Anything else?

Really disappointed. My condition is quite serious.
