"Terrible Hospital with no communication between..."

About: Hull Royal Infirmary

Was referred to AAU by our GP at 6pm - arrived and was told there were no beds and to go to A&E instead where we waited 2 hours to be seen by a nurse and was then left on a bed for a further 2 hours. No one told us what was going on and it took me going out to the corridor to stress the urgency of my partner's condition who was suffering with dehydration and simply needed a IV drip. Did not see a doctor at A&E and was then transferred to AAU at 10pm where I saw a nurse after 1.5 hours at 11.30pm and have not yet seen a doctor despite it now being 12.30am - 6.5 hours after arrival to the hospital! Absolute disgrace of a place
