"The treatment of my partner"

About: Hereford County Hospital / Accident and emergency

(as a carer),

My partner was taken to Hereford County Hospital following 5 Major Seizures by Ambulance.

He was in A and E for many hours, tired after his ordeal, not a lot was done. He was told at 2.30 am he could go home, a Taxi was ordered for him and please bear in mind he was just in his pajamas and still feeling very unwell. What l want to know is want if he had more seizures in that Taxi, with no professional help, my mind boggles.

I am totally disgusted anyone could be treated in this way. On top of that the taxi cost £40.
