"Delay in treating my mother's asthma"

About: Royal Gwent Hospital / Accident & Emergency

(as a relative),

My mum was admitted with asthma and waited an hour before seeing a doctor.

Not able to breathe properly. When we complained we were told she was a walk in case so not urgent.

Hello kirsty57,

Thank you for your fedback. If you would like us to find out more about why your mum had to wait, please could you email sharon.harford@wales.nhs.uk with your mum's name, date of birth and patient number. Also we would need your mother's consent to look into this for you.
