"Treatment for Quinsy in A&E"

My daughter attended your A&E department this weekend at 10pm. She has recently had a bout of Quinsy so knew the symptoms straight away and that she needed antibiotics and maybe a needle aspiration.
The Doctor in A&E did not seem to know what Quinsy was or what to do about it.
He gave her 2 bottles of antibiotic and a bottle of pain killers ( firstly offering tablets - until my daughter told him she couldn't swallow. )
The bottles he gave her did not have her name on, or the dose or frequency of the dose, which I believe is not good practice.
I brought her home ( as she is a student in Blackpool) and have been to see our own GP ( 3 days later). She informs me that the antibiotic that my daughter was given was not the correct type and that would have no effect on the Quinsy, so we have now started on another 10 day dose.
