"Total shambles"

Anything else?

My husband was referred by our gp on monday evening,the GP called the hospital before he left the surgery and was told he would be met at the hospital by a registrar. Arriving at A& E he was asked to take a seat and wait for the triage nurse who he saw after approx 20 mins, he was once again asked to wait. after 4 and a half hours.He finally saw the registrar and was told to wait for a brain scan, some 60 mins later he was informed no scanner was available and that he could come home and be sent an outpatiens appointment for a couple of days time. Ater no appointment arriving iIhave called today and been transferred around to 6 different people, none who can tell me what is going on, considering this is supposed to be an urgent brain scan it is appalling.
