The ambulance took a round about way to the Bristol Royal Infirmary, on arrival we spent 2 hours waiting to be admitted to A+E. The paramedics were very good. We then spent 14 hours in A+E waiting for a bed, during which we found out my mother had a small bleed on the brain. She then spent just over a day on the ward under observation before being discharged. The staff were fantastic throughout, it's a shame they don't have the resources to do the job they do so well.
