"Serious letdown in patient care"

About: Hinchingbrooke Hospital

My Daughters partner was taken to Hinchinbrooke by ambulance after collapsing at home on thursday 15 Oct after headache's being sick and losing his feelings down his rightside and after numerous blood tests and a cat scan they then told her he needs a MRI scan but could not do this because its the wk/end, they also failed to notice that the rightside of his face had dropped his speech was slurred and also lost all his co'ordination down his rightside. What sort of experience level does this tell you, and to top it all Saturday they tell him he can go home and phone Monday to try an book a MRI scan appointment . Its totally Disgusting as my Daughter has to dress him take him to the toilet also help feed him. What a disgrace and still not come up with any diagnosis of his condition.
