Wesmed sends boy with symptoms of meningitis home

Monday evening on the 1st of july my son of 4 complained of headache and neck pain and later that evening he woke up and started to throw up I was in a panic I was scared he has meningitis and I took him to the Bougainville emergency services he was crying of pain and nausea. when I got there they said I must pay an amount to see the doctor beforehand I did that and we went In to see the doctor. He didn't do a proper examination he said my son has a muscle that is hurt in his neck and he put an transact plaster on his neck. the next day still in a panic because my son was still throwing up and crying from pain I took him to my doctor she said she can see he has infection in his airways but I should still take him to another doctor to make sure its not meningitis. I did that had to pay again to see the new doctor and he confirmed that it wasn't meningitis if the first doctor did his job I wouldn't have ended up paying over R1000 for everything I told the hospital that I didn't get service and expect my money back because the doctor didn't do his job properly. they informed me that they cant do that. It isn't the first time that there has been complaints about this doctor.
