"Worse A and E service"

About: Sunderland Royal Hospital

Came to the A and E with my wife as gp sent her for urgent examination and some blood test

She gave birth just more than a week ago and her legs sowllen excessively with high blood pressure and dizziness but after we arrived the A and E they sent her to Pallion health centre about 5 minutes walk even though my wife is hardly anle to stand properly due to dizziness,

After waiting more than an hour on Pallion health centre they said she needs to go back to the A and E

Came back to the A and E and we have been 2.5 hrs waiting but still not been seen..

I have been to many other A and E in uk

But never experienced such a worse service.
