"Still wait after 12 hours in A&E Dept"

About: Queen's Hospital (Romford)

(as the patient),

My father in law was taken to A & E at Queens at 1am this morning (17th September) it is now almost 12 hours later and my 90 year old father in law is STILL in A & E waiting to be seen by a medical team doctor. I don't understand why so much money was spent on this hospital to offer services like this. It is disgraceful - you wouldn't treat an animal like this, so why treat a 90 year old extremely confused gentleman. We live 30 miles away and cannot get to the hospital easily - I was ringing every hour for an update - now it is every 30 mins - very soon it will be every 15 mins!
