About: Broomfield Hospital / Accident and emergency

I got a cab into A&E with severe stomach pains and passing blood. I was seen quickly and blood and urine was taken (that was it) but then I was left in the waiting room for nearly 7 hours (all night) and never saw any doctor or anything was explained to me. I was very tired and in lots of pain. In the end it was morning and I phoned my GP who saw me straight away. Disgusting service
