I was admitted to AnE on the 3rd September due to kidney stones through the outpatients gp centre. I got to AnE approximately 10:45pm (after being told I'd be seen straight away) and waited about half an hour before seeing anyone. This I wouldn't have minded so much if I didn't feel like I was in labour and had everyone staring at me like I was too. I was took through the back around 11:30 and put in a side room with my husband, still in pain and trying to get comfy. At 1am I finally got pain relief and could finally try and relax on a trolley bed. 3am I finally got onto a ward and they had to put a canular in due to being dehydrated. There was some amazing staff day and night but not enough of them. The next morning after I'd pressed my buzzer for some medication a nurse came on about 20 minutes later apologising saying she had to take care of my room and next doors on her own due to low staff. I was discharged the following day and told I'd be getting a letter sent out for a follow up in two weeks. That was two weeks ago yesterday and I've not had a letter yet.
