Hi @Franko. You highlight a real problem with care in hospitals. I originally went to my local hospital with breathing problems and palpitations after calling 999. The first responder was very offhand, and said I could go to hospital if I wanted to!!! She took me in her car, but made it obvious that she thought I was a time waster. Thankfully the doctor I saw said I had done the right thing and admitted me. However I was stuck in a corner between two men, and left there for two days, before being transferred to a ward. Again I was mostly ignored, and eventually I discharged myself. My GP was very supportive, and eventually I went to a different hospital and from then on my treatment was excellent. During treatment for HL (which the 1st hospital had not picked up) I had to go to 4 different hospitals, where all consultants were up to date with my condition. All involved in my treatment gave me time to discuss what was going to happen.
I also had plenty of time to chat to the nurses while they were administering my chemotherapy, taking blood, or cleaning my Hickman Line
I still use my local hospital to deal with long term after effects, and on one occasion I was ignored by a locum, and I complained on NHS Choices. Since then I have not had a problem there. I reckon they have a marker on my folder, as they realised they were lucky that I did not make an issue of the way they had missed my HL diagnosis.
