"Disgraceful!!"

About: Royal Surrey County Hospital

I was told to go to A&E by a doctor, got in fine registered with the receptionist, after waiting 4hours went back to reception to be told they hadn't put my paper work through to the nurses!!!! Waited half hour saw a nurse who said we will be next to see a doctor!, back in waiting room I went, to sit there for over two more hours and not be called. Spoke to nurse they said only 1doc there today!! Ended up coming home with no help from nhs! Pray to god I never have to go back there, wouldn't want anyone to go there absolutely appalling.
