Saturday night came in at 11:30PM - spent 5.5 hours till 5 AM waiting for a SINGLE DOCTOR to look at my wife with severe painful abdomen cramps and other dangerous symptoms. Had 3 people at 5 AM still... more waiting in line to be seen before us, for 6+ hours as their parking was running out which is another joke, so couldn't cope with it and just went home after signing a discharge form and talking to the doc for 5 mins WHICH WAS ENOUGH, as all the symptoms went away after 3 hours of agonizing wait and two blood pressure measurements. Lucky us ! A guy next to us had a broken wrist and just went home after 2.5 hours of sitting in the waiting room - he only had some tissue wrapped around his hand by a nurse to keep it steady and simply couldn't be arsed anymore. Thanks conservatards for defunding NHS ! Nurses: "You've been waiting for a long time - may wait a bit longer (at 3 AM), the doctor will see you soon", every time you talk to them. "I dont know how long it will take, we have one doctor looking after 50 patients and some with emergencies". DISGUSTING EXPERIENCE
Cannot fault the care we received when having my baby. From the tour of the hospital/maternity unit before the birth to post care we were all looked after. The staff were all amazing, sincere and seemed... more to genuinely care about me, my husband and our new baby. We were introduced to every new staff member and their role and only have positive things to say about our experience.
