"4hrs waiting to be seen and counting"

About: Bedford Hospital South Wing

I am reviewing the A&E as I am waiting with my wife to be seen by a specialist because of heavy bleeding. Despite telling nurses that she is bleeding as we speak and fainted two times while waiting. We just kept waiting. 2hrs before a urging sample, 1hr before a blood test, and one hr so far to see the specialist (and counting. The room where the blood sample was collected was filthy. I am writing this review as we are waiting in a corridor. Four hours and still no body saw us
