"Discharged from A&E unable to walk."

About: Huddersfield Royal Infirmary

My son arrived by ambulance, no kidneys, no bowel, with cellulitis in leg, in past he had had 2 heart attacks and several cardiac arrests, knowing this the doctor said to me on the phone that they would get him a taxi home, I said he can’t walk and lives alone, she said she would give him some crutches and some antibiotics for the cellulitis, I said but he lives alone he can’t walk, they said he will be ok! I am absolutely disgusted in the care (no care) he received.
