"Lack of care and treatment"

About: Lincoln County Hospital / Accident and emergency

(as the patient),

Was told to attend LINCOLN MEAU by GP

Arrived at 10. 30 am - no bed

Admitted at 11. 15, told I needed chest X ray, heart trace and blood test. Blood test completed immediately.

Left to sit in chair and finally saw doctor about 2pm

After initial examination, nothing then happened until approx 6pm when I asked to leave the hospital. In that time I had seen no one, I wasn't asked how I felt, if I was in pain, nothing, utterly disgraceful.

Finally had chest X Ray at approx 6. 30 and then left. If this is the best LINCOLN can do, then it's time to call it a day and close the place down and start again. I will never ever attend Lincoln hospital again and if I or any of my family need treatment, I will arrange to transfer them to Nottingham or SHEFFIELD.
