Four-hour wait would be a lux­ury for some pa­tients

Daily Express - - LETTERS -

I CAN’T be­lieve any­one is alarmed at a four-hour wait­ing time dead­line be­ing missed dur­ing win­ter (“Alarm over 4-hour waits at A&Es in win­ter cri­sis”, Novem­ber 13).

My husband was ad­mit­ted twice by his doc­tor in the early part of this year only to wait five hours on a trol­ley and seven hours be­fore be­ing found a bed. He later died.

I have been to A&E re­cently and waited five hours on a chair in se­vere pain and was only seen when I said I thought I may pass out and I was then found a trol­ley.

My brother in law waited six hours af­ter be­ing sent in by his doc­tor two months ago.

Where I live we would be over the moon with a four-hour wait­ing time. June Ir­win, Ch­ester
