"Still worrying"

About: Conquest Hospital

Anything else?

I had to attened A&E on Thursday 14th Feb.I arrived at 8am with uncontrolale shaking (due water infection) i sat down and waited for 30 mins before i was seen by a nurse, by this time i had become incoherent and was running a very high tempt. I was left in a side ward while the nurse dissapeared. My wife noticed my deterioration and that i did not know who she was and i still violently shaking. My wife manged to find a doctor and anthoner nurse, who came in and asked if my blood pressure and temp had been done, my wife replied no. They carried out tests that should had been carried out on addmission and immediately moved into Resuscitation telling my wife i was very ill.Then i had to be transported to Eastbourne Hospital.

While my wife and myself are greatfull to Resuscitation team. There is a problem as when you are initially seen and by whom. We had to complaine to the receptionist twice as there was no trearge nurse available.

Conquest you must bo better.
