"lack of beds"

About: Alexandra Hospital / Accident and emergency

(as a relative),

My husband was brought into A&E at the Alexandra Hospital at a time when they were busy and there was no space for him. While they were no beds for him it did not stop a doctor from making sure he had the best care. While the nurses kept pointing at us and wondering what was going on I felt at ease knowing the doctor was seeing, testing and treating him, it was only after the nurses moved him that we didn't see the doctor for a while....he couldn't find us, So all in all a comforting experience, good work in the A&E at the Alexandra last night. In, tested, treated, and out in 4 hours, much less than I expected.
