"Arrived in casualty at 9pm, not seen until 5am"

About: Glasgow Royal Infirmary / Accident & Emergency

(as a relative),

My mother was discharged from Glasgow Royal Infirmary and re-admitted 3 days later. Arrived in casualty 9pm ,doctor did not see her until 5am ,they made a bed up in casualty.

A day later my mother had took a turn for worse. NHS24 sent doctor to house in hour, he thought it was that bad and yet all the hours waiting to see doctor in a&e. We were told there was only one doctor covering.

It seemed to me that the Royal couldn't handle the patient turn over through a&e whilst we were there. So why close Stobhill?
