"Disgusting delays in the cardiac ward 33"

About: Glenfield Hospital

Currently waiting for an angiogram. Been here 8 days so far. Still no word on when. I realise urgent cases get priority but apparently consultants going on holiday and no cover being provided is ok. While the patients get more ill, the doctors have a lovely time. Don't get told what's happening, when it might happen or what the problem is. I have had a brilliant time in other wards but this one is terrible. Glenfield - you should be ashamed.
