"Perhaps the worse A & E in the UK."

About: St James's University Hospital

Spent another almost 7 hours most of that time was merely waiting to be noticed let alone seen!

Very ill and forced to wait and wait and wait in a horrible environment no one would wish too.

Can't believe how the pain and suffering of people like me can be so overlooked and having to wait in pain for so very long.

Staff dismissive I might as well be a ghost invisible.

I was not alone in my feelings of despair of the situation one found oneself in....

Very Sad indeed!
