What I liked
The doctor, only member of team who talked to me and tried to provide the right treatment.
What could be improved
Patient wait time, having waited 4 hours to see a doctor while i was in pain, watching other patients arrive and seeing a doctor before me. Disgraceful, I will admit some could be worse off but i also heard a nurse say that they got me to a doctor as i was about to breach. Is this what care comes down too? Making sure im not waiting too long?
I went to A&E as told by my doctor if my knee ever went. I suffer from a history of painful and a weak knee joint. This is my Second visit to the hospital. After talking with a doctor, the only person their who seemed to care at all about me, after waiting for 4 hours, watching people come and go before me to see a doctor. The doctor put me down for physiotherapy, which i was very happy with. Got a phone call today saying that i need to go to my GP for a physiotherapy treatment. I feel that i am being lead around different doctors just so the hospital does not have to provide me with treatment. I feel very let down by the NHS now and worry as i can not get a doctors appointment till Thursday, with a knee that still hurts and still does not react as it should.
