5 hour wait in A&E on Sunday 31 August 2019. Husband was peeing blood and having to urinate at 15 minute intervals. The triage nurse obviously thought this was not urgent so put him way down the list. He has prostate cancer which he told them. I would have thought this would point them in the direction of the prostate ? 5 hours in a doctor said no results had come back so sent him home.
The room is too hot and airless, needs air conditioning and not enough chairs. There were about 50 people there some sitting on the window sills and wheelchairs.
I have a 40 mile round trip to get there and had to pay an enormous amount for parking. Gloucester is even further away and I wouldn't know how to get there. I live near bourton on the water.
