About: Heartlands Hospital Heartlands Hospital Birmingham B9 5SS
I work as a doctor in the NHS, in a different trust. Had to be rushed in to A+E at heartlands with an extremely severe headache. Tossing and turnung, unbearable pain. Got no attention at triage, was told to go register and wait. At registration was told to go to minors. I made a fuss that I'm in terrible, terrible pain so stayed in majors. After registration was told to just wait. With the overcrowding and insufficient facilities, the wait was never ending. Whilst the headache was unbearable. Ended up walking out myself as I could not bare the pain. Extremely disappointed.
