"Not impressed"

About: Lincoln County Hospital / Accident and emergency

(as the patient),

I was taken into a&e by two friends at 2: 15am after passing out and not being able to breath while in the car, I was seen by two nurses who were great and they put me in a cubicle telling me a doctor wouldn't be long.

However 4 hours passed by the time I was seen and I was in and out of conciousness continually for the whole time. Before this One of my friends got a nurse as I started fitting but all they did was take my blood pressure and temperature and leave while I was in the same state.

By the time the doctor came I had started to feel myself and therefore they couldn't see what was wrong with me, I was then left a further two hours waiting in which time I had a ECG conducted by a nurse who didn't know how to work the machine and then I was discharged with no diagnosis and only the advice to go to my GP and ask them.
