"Needed urgent Gallbladder removal - A&E sent me..."

About: King's Mill Hospital

Anything else?

waited 4hrs to see a Dr was sent home after being told I had acid integestion. Was given pain killer and gaviscon. I raced to my GP in screaming pain. I got a private referal and laproscopic gallbladder removal. Had a 1.5cm stone trapped in my bile duct.

Absolutely outragous! Its a blessing I had the cover. How can they not investigate? Thats what they are paid to do! I got the ultrasound when I went private A&E just took bloods said they were 'normal' sent me home. The Park were amazing.

The staff at Kings Mill are unorganized, slow and unable to diagnose unless the blood resultsshow anything crazy. Dissatisified...hell yes! Will anything change there? Doubt it.

If you want answers the only way is pay!
