I have been suffering from what still remains to be an unknown and undiagnosed illness constantly for over 4 months. Every NHS member I have interacted with have dismissed my statements of having difficulty with bodily functions including breathing. Getting any sorts of scans and tests done has been ridiculously slow and delayed and I am left in the dark as to what happens next. My illness has not been getting any better and frankly, is getting gradually worse. Several trips to A&E in previous months were dismissed, despite the persistent symptoms. They won't take any actual action until I turn up in hospital spewing blood from every orifice, while on fire! And that's if they decide to send me to the right area to wait first! The paperworks I have been given have no information in regards to contacting the appropriate specialist I have seen. Even the notes taken from the appointment with the specialist contain wrong information; stating I have been suffering for less time than I actually have been! Heaven forbid, if I end up becoming incurable because of the delays and the lack of attention from the NHS staff involved, there will be trouble.
