About: King George Hospital

I went to A&E at exactly 20::30. I was seen by a nurse at 10pm and shortly by a doctor and then had to wait. At 23;30 I was seen by another nurse who did the same procedures and asked the same questions as nurse before. At midnight I was seen by another nurse who took my blood for testing. I waited till 4 am and was told waiting time was now 5 hours. I left with no results and no diagnoses as I couldn't wait any longer. Am speechless.
