Dizzy with double vision and with serious head pain, I attended Crosshouse A & E in the evening. I saw a doctor quickly and was given a cat scan immediately. Then came the problem, I was left on a plastic bed with no pillow or covers in a separate room. My head was painful, felt like it was bursting. Nurses came and another doctor came and went but from about 12 I was left alone. I asked several times for a pillow and was told they had none but would try to find one. In desperation I again wandered the corridors at 4. 30 and found someone who gave me painkillers and a rolled up blanket to use as a pillow. Finally I got some sleep.
The following morning I was transferred to a day ward and was treated very well and had lots of tests, Very caring staff and comfortable surroundings.
