After suffering with chest pains, I was taken into the Southport & Formby District Hospital, where it was discovered that I had a heart problem. I was taken into A&E and then told to wait for results of an x-ray and tests. However, it was 5 hours before a doctor eventually returned with my results. The staff had been trying to get hold of a doctor, but none were available. This is not acceptable. I have spoken to the hospital regarding the fact that it is apparently understaffed.
