"Appalling Waiting times"

About: University Hospital Aintree / Accident and emergency

Absolute joke. I went to A&E at 9am this morning due to various symptoms. Was seen by the A&E Doctor to be told they didn't know what to do so was taking advice from medical doctors and they would get back to me in half an hour. 3 hours after this so called half an hour I got called back in to the A&E Doctor to be told I would be taken to see the medical doctor. I was taken to AMU to see the medical doctor. I seen this doctor at 810pm. Why the hell did I wait from 9am check in till 810pm to be told that they can't help me after reading my extensive medical record and that I need to contact my rheumatologist. Unbelievable!
