Four-hour wait would be a luxury for some patients
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
