Whipped to Victoria hospital and Left for 5 1/2 Hours with NO Scan or blood clot injections Night Doctor refused to treat wife and accept my TimeLines, though I'm a professional too, and spent most of their time not treating the wife, but talking to the staff about their previous life abroad. NHSfife could Not find this doctor or where they lived, Also fife 's stroke policy is that a scan only has to be carried out in 24 to 30 hours! Strange, the person in the next cubicle, who fell down stairs got a scan 1 1/2 hours after admission, and arriving after my wife. So much for the TV adverts asking people to watch for FAST & dial 999. My wife was in hospital for 9 months, is partial paralysed, cannot speak, and is Brain Damaged.
After a complaint by my MSP I met the A & E and ward staff, who, in my opinion, lied, and they could even do that with all the facts in black and white. At 63 years young, we used to look up to the medical Doctors and Consultants, but when asked at the investigation, these 2 consultants stated that high Oxygen doses were of no use and would not help as my wife's brain was dead! .. Dead no and why do other Countries like USA ,Canada, Australia, New Zealand and some in Europe, give saturated Oxygen at the scene to Stroke Victims ?
