Anything else?

My 70 year old wife was rushed by ambulance to the Medway Hospital early this morning after passing out with a suspected heart attack, only to be left in a chair in the waiting room. After sitting for one hour of a three hour wait we could stand no more and had to discharge ourself as my wife would be far better of at home in bed instead of putting up with all the stress of A&E. Now we find that the blood tests that were taken may be discarded and the results withheld. God help us all.
