My partner was admitted to hospital 5days ago with excruciating back pain . After waiting in a corridor for over 2hours he was eventually seen in A&E.He was then left pretty much unattended for 6hours until he was then moved to the overnight ward next door.He was then stuck there waiting to be sent to the Conquest hospital in Hastings where they have an orthopaedic ward so he can actually get treatment rather than just being drugged up and left in pain.He never got to see the pain management team during the whole of his stay.I really was shocked at how much this hospital has deteriorated.Apart from a few caring members of staff the care was lacking. I know the NHS is under pressure but the truth is it is just not good enough.
