My brother who has terminal cancer was taken by ambulance to PRU A&E with breathing problems, It took 10hrs to find him a bed in a medical ward when he really needs the specialist care in the Chartwell Unit, he has only a few months to live but the staff failed to understand his condition and needs. I know that A&E is a high demand department but most of the patients there did not have life threatening conditions. There seemed to be more time spent on computers then with patients, not a good experience if the computers crashed how would they cope.
