About: Hythe Hospital Hythe Hospital SO45 4ZB
My husband needed an important blood test this morning but on arrival found the waiting room to be packed and apparently ,no nurses and the 'ticket machine' had run out, so was told no blood tests were being done - rather than leave my, nearly 90, husband there for another three hours as happened last week, we left - what on earth is happening to the NHS, everyone seems to run round like headless chickens. Were the Nurses on strike today? I just wish more information was forthcoming, but there was no nurse to be seen to ask anything - took the information from another very elderly gentleman who was sitting in a room packed with people which appeared to be abandoned! If we try again tomorrow will there be anyone there - or will the 'ticket machine' be out of tickets again (surely someone can make sure tickets are in stock ready for the machine!) How unbelievably dis- organised it seems - I appreciate I do not have all the facts but on the face of it, its a disgrace! A waste of my precious time and everyone else there.
