"Three day wait for a scope in my stomach"

About: Leighton Hospital / Gastroenterology

(as the patient),

In July I was in hospital and was advised by the doctor to have a scope in my stomach.

For 3 days I waited being put on nil by mouth on and off for the 3 days finally on the 4th day I had the scope done no apology was given to me or to anyone else as far as I know.

Therefore I was taking up a bed for 4 days which could have been given to someone else who needed it more than myself, plus the cost must have been a lot!
