"Bone infection"

About: Witney Community Hospital

On Sunday my daughter tried to get help at MIU but none was offered. Went yesterday at 9.20, 2 people waiting my daughter was in setious pain, she has heart and lung disease but her elbow was causing much pain, unable to move it, swollen feelingless fingers. Despite signs saying if lots of pain to tell the staff and after telling them several times, we were kept waiting 6 hours. Finallyban ambulance was called as she has a bone infection and she is now in the Nuffield. No one seemed bothered or willing to help.
