About: Stoke Mandeville Hospital Stoke Mandeville Hospital Aylesbury HP21 8AL
Today I had to go to A&E with a letter from my GP arrived approx 7.15 pm an hour and 20 mins later I saw the triage nurse. At 11.45pm I still hadnt seen a doctor and it was filling up fast again. While waiting spoke to a lot of people one man 83 diabetic was waiting on a trolly since 4 pm for a bed. And lots of others were coming in by ambulance . They wanted to put an antibiotic drip in me and for me to stay in. At 11.45pm I left as I was taking antibiotic tables already and how long would I have to wait for a bed when that poor man had been waiting all that time and so were lots of others. What has happened to our A&E the staff cant cope to many people and not enough staff caused by other A&E dept closing locally it is very bad. PS whilst waiting for a taxi outside 3 more ambulances arrived at A&E in 10 mins.
