I went to A&E as referred by my doctor over the phone as I am pregnant and was experiencing bleeding. Waited 2 hours to be told to wait longer to arrange an appointment for a scan the following week.
I was the first one there with nobody in front of me and after 2.5 hours of waiting, I left in disgust.
The reception staff I met were like Vicky Pollard, answering everything with it's nothing to do with them and I'd have to wait even when asked if I could just book an appointment over the phone. I'm not sure why they don't just tell you to go home and do nothing rather than wait for hours to be told that.
I felt like an unwelcome guest in their home.
Poor as usual.
