My father of 85 yrs was brought to heartlands by ambulance at 3. 30pm with a suspected bowel blockage. He was eventually X-rayed at 5pm at 8pm he was moves to the surgical assessment unit and has still not been seen by anyone or told what it happening! For an 85yr old man in pain, I think this is disgusting surely someone could give some indication as to what the X-ray showed as he is very distressed and worried.
6hrs with no news is not good enough. Why can supermarkets operate a 24hr service but a hospital gets nothing done between Friday lunchtime and Monday morning!
What are we paying taxes for?
