Taken into A@E by extremely caring ambulance crew following bleeding from the lungs I was then dumped in the waiting room,amonsgt drunks,obvious drug addicts being removed by police and other genuinley sick people.Waiting time 4 hours! Sent to xray,only to find nobody there-and told by a caring member of staff to"wait then until there is!" Finally after 7 hours told by a registrar that I possibly had TB or lung cancer and would need an urgent ct scan followed by appt to discuss,so would be contacted 2 days later on Monday.
Did not happen.After seeing my GP got scan date and appt-only for scan to get cancelled.Finally had scan two weeks later-and 2 weeks later still waiting for appointment that was urgent so still have no idea wether I am indeed suffering from either of those two things! This hospital is a joke-except it is not funny leaving people worrying for over 4 weeks-thanks to my GP who prescribed an antibiotic the bleeding has stopped,no thanks to the Medway at all!
