I presented to the Sale Hospital Emergency Department (ED) as per the recommendation of my GP after complications post colposcopy which was done elsewhere.
When I told the doctors at the ED that my GP had told me to go there for IV antibiotics, the doctor then told me no, they had to do their own tests first because the hospital's pathology department was different to the doctor's clinic pathology department.
They then waited to do more tests, and due to being in excruciating pain, I begged them to come up with a better alternative. It appeared the doctor quite literally huffed and puffed and said they'll have to talk to their manager. About 20 minutes later the doctor came back with their manager who told me if I was refusing the internal examination they couldn’t treat me because I was a liability to the hospital and that couldn’t happen.
The manager also told me my pain couldn’t be that bad. I didn’t realise they'd know what uterine and cervical pain was like but whatever they reckon. I was not offered any form of pain relief or anti-nausea medication. They refused to give the IV antibiotics and told me to go home and go back to my GP because I wasn’t the hospital's problem.
I hate Sale Hospital's Emergency Department on the best of days but this was just the 'icing on the cake', in my opinion. I’d honestly rather end up travelling the hour to other hospitals than ever let a doctor from Sale's Emergency Department touch me again.
