"Not interested in my problem"

About: Worcestershire Royal Hospital

What could be improved

I went A+E with a problem with my leg following angio plasty at the hospital, my calf muscle spreading up to my thigh was in agony and i could not walk but managed to get there by myself, i was given pain relief and then told i would be seen at the vascular clinic the next day

i am still waiting for that telephone call and have now been three days without pain relief and i can only lessen the pain by laying flat and not moving. it took me 20 minutes to get down to the kitchen this morning and i am sat here in agony.

is it worth going back to a+E i doubt it
