As I could not get an appointment with our GP early enough for my wife to be seen when she was very unwell I called 111. I was advised there were no ambulances for 4-5 hours, the same when I called 999. In the end I took my wife to the A&E unit at the Queen Elizabeth hospital.
At the hospital there were 8/9 ambulances, when I asked about all the ambulances there I was told they all had people who were being treated in the ambulances as the A&E department was so busy
My wife was later admitted to the hospital and operated upon for a fused bowel and bladder.
Sadly my wife died not being able to cope with the strain of the operation and the other condition she suffered from.
