Suffring in order to obtain medical report

Again, I'm going to write about medical field in Sudan, because the Sudanese citizens suffer from this field more and more...

Yesterday, I felt tired and I decide to go to hospital. I chose a private hospital because they look after their patients opposite the public hospital.

The doctor told me that I have malaria and typhoid and I should sleep for three days. He gave me a medical report, but the clinic of our university doesn't accept medical reports from private hospitals.

I went to the public hospital to get medical report, but they told me that I should come at the next day because the doctor is not here! I went home and came back today, but they asked me to wait for an hour to meet the doctor, I waited him for 83 min and at last I met him. He asked me to get paper because there are no papers in the hospital!! I got the paper and came back, but the doctor was left!! I asked "where is the doctor?" they said "He went to take his breakfast with his father"!!

Finally, I found the doctor but he told me that his secretary is not here and the seal is with her...

I lost hope and went to another public hospital, but the same problem was waiting me there - the doctor isn't there- .

I waited for 46 min to meet him, then he asked me to pay 15 SDP (7.32$) to get the medical report!

I paid it and got the paper, but the doctor was not in his place again! I went to the secretary and sealed the paper without signature and went home!!!

After this sad story, I arrived to important point which is "The ministry of health doesn't supervise on the work of its hospitals"

And this is dangrous thing.

Does this happen in your countries?
