"Father had to walk when wheelchair didn't arrive"

About: Cheltenham General Hospital / Older people's healthcare

(as a relative),

A wheelchair was ordered to move my 90 year old grandfather, who has COPD, acute angina and prostate cancer, from one part of the ward where he is an in patient to another. The wheelchair didn't arrive so he was made to walk and subsequently suffered a severe angina attack. In my opinion his condition has deteriorated significantly as a result.
