"A&E waited 12 hrs"

About: Medway Maritime Hospital / Accident and emergency

Waited 12 hrs in pain on a wheelchair, I have Parkinson's and found it distressing having to sit all 12 hrs in wheelchair waiting for a bed on a ward. Also had treatment in a crowded room with no privacy! I am also bladder incontinent which was also distressing worrying about wetting myself!! A nightmare scenario which I feel was the worst experience I have ever had in A&E. logo
