"Waiting time"

About: Hereford County Hospital

My mother in law is lying in A & E as I write this review at 17 minutes past midnight on the 27 August. She was admitted to hospital on the recommendations of her doctor and arrived at 6pm on the 26th August. She spent two hours on a trolley before she was seen by a nurse and given pain killers. 6 hours later my 89 year mother in law has yet to see a doctor. She suffers from the effects of a stroke and has become very frail. My wife, who has travelled from Ironbridge in Shropshire tells me that she has been told it may be a further 2 hours before she sees a doctor and that there are no beds available for her.
