About: Southmead Hospital Southmead Hospital Bristol BS10 5NB
The a and e department is under staffed and there are not enough beds.There where ambulances queuing to hand over patients. A and E had no beds. Apparently at one point 12 ambulances waiting to hand over patients. Understaffed and not enough beds. Ambulance waiting times are appalling. I waited 3 hours for an ambulance to arrive. It is because all hanging around at the hospital. A and E needs to be twice the size. And this was a monday afternoon.
