8 hour wait in car park very short staffed

September 14, 2021
Had to go to a and e for urgent treatment of condition that had previously led to sepsis. Waited 8 hours in car park before being seen by doctor ....packed inside and out...no seats available and people literally laying on the concrete pavement outside waiting to be seen . By the time I was seen condition had progressed to stage of needing hospital admission and intravenous antibiotics. Waited another 2 hrs in chair incorridor before getting antibiotics, told no beds available in the wards but that they needed me to stay at hospital for treatment. Others in even worse position than me. Staff doing absolute best but only one doctor on duty and extremely busy !! Couldn’t believe this was happening in uk hospital !

Taken my wife into A&E twice in 48 hours

The experience was good, I admire the patience and dedication of most staff, except reception people. Nurses and doctors are very good, working in difficult times.

A very skeleton service on offer for walk in

January 21, 2021
I was advised to go to A&E by NHS 111. When I arrived I was instructed by a poster to stand at the entrance and to wait for a nurse which took about 5 to 10 minutes. I then had my temperature checked and was told to sign in with the receptionist. I then waited to be triaged by a paramedic which took about 10 minutes. The paramedic went and gave me a antihistamine tablet to take straightaway as I was suffering from an allergic reaction to a flu jab that I had had earlier in the day. There were about 8 other people in A & E as it was difficult to maintain a social distance. I felt very uncomfortable. I was seen at about 4.30am after a three hour wait. I saw the doctor for 2 minutes and then sent home. I did wonder if I might have been and sent home without such a long wait. I didn’t have any choice about going and the experience wasn’t good.
