"High blood sugar"

About: Newham General Hospital

Anything else?

Went into a&e with my husband spent four hours before anyone checked his sugar levels, which was 24.4 this being the reason for going to hospital as he was feeling very unwell' they checked it and it was 20. So was sent home and told to see the doctors nurse. What an utter waste of four hours.
