"disappointment in decisions and waiting"

About: Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital

Recently sadly I had a visit to this hospital but I was kept waiting for a bed in AMU for 12 hours and when the decision came I was transferred not to a ward but to a chair and a room because they thought they couldn't do much else fir me. I was cold tired and hungry and was given tablets on a empty stomach tablets I couldn't take despite me telling the doctor I was told I had to take them and now 4 days kater at home through these tablets I'm still very giddy.
