"appalling"

About: Southend Hospital

What I liked

my husband went into a+e with chest pain, he was put on an ecg for all of 2 mins, then was told to sit in the waiting room and the doctors will see him in 5 hours as they were busy.

he has been to many different hospital due to a running issue with heart problems he has never ever been treated like it.

it is absolutley appaling and totally unexecptable.

a formal complaint is being sent.
