My daughter who was 17 years of age at the time suffered a Stroke in February 2013.
She was taken to the A and E Department by ambulance after waiting 1 and a half hours before the ambulance turned up after phoning 999.
We then waited another 3 and a half hours before we saw a doctor who immediately asked for a CT Scan. They told us they thought that she had Meningitis.
By midnight she was admitted to AMU(L) at the N & N University Hospital where the staff then moved her to Dunston Ward and didn't tell us.
She then had a MRI Scan 24 hours after being admitted to hospital where they found out that she had had a Stroke.
