"waited in a and e for 6 hours to see a doctor"

About: York Hospital

With having 7 seizures in one day my dad called 111 twice and in the end they said call an ambulance. Ambulance came and took me to a and e had another seizure in the ambulance then had 5 in a and e during my 6 hour wait in a cubicle which is not good enough!! And the last one I had the doctor finally witnessed. I was given the choice to stay in but the wait before been admitted to a ward was another several hours! Not impressed at all!!! So mum and dad looked after me as I couldn't stand staying in any longer!!!
