I was kept waiting for 5 hours for an ambulance to take me back home.
I was taken to the South Bristol Community Hospital at 9. 20 in the morning as arranged by the Bristol eye Hospital. This was fine, and the hospital then contacted the ambulance service to let them know that I was ready to be collected and returned home. This was at 11. 00.
The ambulance crew cam to collect me at around 4. 00 in the afternoon and I did not get home till 6. 40 that evening.
It was dreadful. The crew said they did not get my pick up details until the afternoon between 2. 30 and 3. 00.
It was a good job I had taken sandwiches with me as I am diabetic.
