I attended late evening in early June, had chest pains told wait would be hours.
I had some medication, went for chest xray, collapsed and had to call for help. Bad reaction to tablets, was discharged with antibiotics and told an appt would be sent for chest clinic.
The waiting times were terrible especially for serious things and very young children 4 hours or more. Also the parking charges were terrible considering these are mainly emergencies. There should be a cap on times in both instances.
Also they have still not sent through the details of my visit to my GP, a whole week later, after telling me to go for a blood test in one week, how when they do not know what it is for?
