As far as we are concerned the hospital is under manned and overcrowded. The a&e department is terrible, my husband was taken in by ambulance from rugby and spent 13 hours,on a trolley before he was taken to a ward, 3 hrs of that was spent in a corridor with a lot of other elderly patients on trolley s whilst the cubicles were taken up with people worse for wear sleeping it off.surely it should be the other way round. There is no dignity no seats for people who accompany the patients and you could die of thirst before they offer you a drink, you need to take your own, ward 12 is very good and ward 33 short stay, needs a lot of improvement they need to learn how to answer the phone. It would improve things in a& e if you had a separate area for the treatment of drunks and drug users with staff trained to deal with them, thus freeing up space and manpower to look after the genuine cases.
