Much organisation needed. After phoning first I was told I needed to bring my mum she would need seeing too. The problem was a nose bleed, my mum takes warfarin. We had been the walk in centre in the morning, who said go to A&E if it doesn't improve and there's clots.
My mum is 91, after being in A&E 3 1/2 hours and whilst waiting she had a nose bleed that lasted 1/2 hour, I told the receptionist but nothing was done. Finally we saw a doctor who said - hold your nose for 15 mins and then see if it's stopped, do this for an hour. We had tried that all day, it would stop for a bit and start again. What a waste of 3 1/2 hours.
10 pm we got home, mum was exhausted and it was a complete waste of time. That was Saturday, it's now Wednesday and seems to be easing off. In all the years I have visited A&E with my mum there has only been the once that have been pleased in how we have been treated and the waiting time 😁😞
