About: Royal Berkshire Hospital Royal Berkshire Hospital Reading RG1 5AN
Fed up with a system that appears to be failing round their ears. My wife Hilary was admitted to A&E on Monday 2nd Nov for a possible heart attack. she and I were in A&E for nearly seven hours before being transferred to AEU where she underwent some tests which came back clear. Yesterday Tuesday 3rd she was scheduled for a stress test which was due to take place in the afternoon which did not take place. We were told it would take place today Wednesday 4th it is now 13:50 and my wife was told they could not find a porter. she was transferred to Redlands Ward last night. What a complete and utter shambles. This hospital has already failed an assessment and on this showing it is likely to fail again. A distinct lack of communication from those in charge who apparently cannot meet their own specified deadlines.
