"I will have to wait until my daughter recovers..."

About: East Surrey Hospital

What I liked

The only thing i liked about the hospital it's near to my daughter home.

What could be improved

The A&E need to be looked at in details , my daughter went in with chest pains and a very low blood count she was put in a chair in the corner with a sailine drip in her arm for over 6-7 hours she was also told she needed a blood transfusion after all that waiting she was sent home and not given the blood,only with an appointment for an iron infusion 8 days later but unfortunately 4 days later she collasped and was rushed back to A&E of which time she was given blood, had she lived alone i perish the thought what could of happen. I have lost all faith and trust i had in that hospital.
