"A&E being left in corridor"

About: Crosshouse Hospital / Cardiology

(as the patient),

After being admitted for chest pain I was left in corridor as a&e got very busy and there was no room upstairs. I was left there for 1 and a half hours. It was very embarrassing.

Dear Joqotgf,

Oh dear me, I am really sorry, that is not a nice place to be, particularly as you must have been in pain too. I will pass this to the team so they are aware of your post and your feelings. Thank you for being in touch and sharing this with us, it helps us to understand your feelings and hopefully it will be help us avoid this in future. I also hope you are fully recovered now.

Best wishes,
