I attended the A & E Dept due to a tear in my retina. I waited four hours to be seen by an eye doctor despite my optician telling that I needed to be seen immediately. Family members said they would come and sit with me but there was nowhere for them to sit as it was so crowded. I was told to return the next day at 10.30 for laser treatment.
I wasn't seen by a doctor until 2.30pm and left the hospital at 4.15pm, patients had been waiting since 7.10am and were still in the clinic when I left.
It appeared that patients are all told to arrive at the same time for follow up treatment which meant that many patients sit and wait for hours.
