The trainee doctors and nurses were great but the stand in doctor was not. His English was poor, he had no empathy and told me I probably had a cold in my organs when in fact it was a bad kidney infection.
He discharged me from A&E when my temperature was too high, so the nurse had to call me back in to put me on a drip. The 'stand in' doctor also forgot to ask me if I was allergic to any medication and ticked 'no' on the prescription slip.
Once I got to the pharmacy dispensary, staff asked if I had any allergies and I did, so they weren't pleased with the doctor either.
