"Lack of Care"

About: NHS West Hertfordshire

(as a relative),

My partner has been having seizure like attacks and has been to the GP then passed on to specialist after specialist...

When he has rung the surgery and told the receptionists about it, they normally tell him to go to A&E and while normally that would help it wouldn't in this case as he is sent home and so it goes on.

He tried to get in to see one of the Dr's again today and was told there were no appointments available and to ring tomorrow. He had just had an attack! They told him to wait.

How much longer does he have to wait? He has waited 4 years now and the CATT was called in at one stage. He is not coping and I am afraid that he will end his own life if something isn't done to help him soon.
