"Ambulance staff first class , A+E staff could..."

About: Stoke Mandeville Hospital

Rushed in by ambulance . Left in a bay unchecked for 1 1/2 hours , eventually an HCA who spoke to me as if I was 5 arrived and checked my stats. Finally saw a doctor after 4 hours after my husband had told them he was taking me to another hospital. Then tests and scans etc sorted quickly and partial diagnosis made. No follow up came as promised. It never does this has happened several times. I have complex health problems and because they don't have knowledge of them they do nothing to help when I am in crisis.
