"Long waiting time in A&E"

About: Sandwell General Hospital / Accident and emergency

(as a relative),

Long waiting times in A&E. The staff I met seemed moody, as if they didn't want to be there.

Waited 2 hours in A&E and then moved to a cubicle to see doctor which was pointless as I was sat there another hour before being seen.

Seems to me like they've found a loophole around the 2 hour waiting time. Left very unhappy.
