"Q&A Shambles."

About: Queen Alexandra Hospital

Arrived A&E 10.50 am left hospital 5.35 pm total sustenance 1 small cup of tea. 82 years old so too old to feed and water. Administration of the dark ages No use made of medical records even though I am receiving treatment in several departments of this white elephant. Alternative blood thinning tablets have no antidote. Already noted in my notes has useless for me no compression stocking mentioned although they standard NHS treatment. Why not? Standard procedures blood pressure etc. asked for by three different people in first hour what a waste of money! Overall performance minus ten!!
