After having a heart attack, and stent fitted 8wks ago
I was referred by GP to Hospital as I was having sever chest pain. I handed in my referral letter to reception who informed that doctor was aware of my arrrival.
And someone would see me imediately.
45min passed and suffering with sever chest pain I had to go back to receptionist
Who had to take me straight to triage nurse.
IWas seen by nurse, ECG, taken and noted that I had elevations on my reading.
I stayed in A&E for 3hrs. Seeing no Docter, pain relief, or any communication.
And was transferred to A&E assent area...and waited another 3hrs before discharging my self as they only one doctor covering the whole Area. and informed that no doctor could see me.......I never make judgment on the NHS but I think this situation is a disgrace, and according to staff this is a regular occurrence
