"Five and a half hour wait."

About: Queen Alexandra Hospital

Visited Accident and emergency Department 14/07/2014 with my wife who was in a lot of pain and feeling unwell Five and a half hour waiting time, we went home in the end with out treatment . Most of the female staff were more interested in chatting to the two security men behind the counter than actually helping people. Nice to see our taxes and national insurance contributions are being well spent. Well Done Queen Alexandra Great work !
