"Waited too long to see a doctor"

About: Whiston Hospital

(as the patient),

I went to the Whiston Hospital in Liverpool to the A & E and the medical assessment unit.

I had an E.C.G. and went on the heart machine straight away. I went in at 12 noon, all the tests were done on me and I was kept in until a doctor came to interview me at 4.00am in the morning. There are not enough doctors, my visit was at 4.00am in the early hours of the morning.

I did not like being interviewed in the middle of the night, it was not the doctor's fault, they need more staff.

I was in hospital for blood tests, x-rays. I waited 16 hours for the results. I stayed in overnight.
