How long should it take to see a Doctor?

Today I went into my local clinic and about 2 hours wait, got to see nurse she said I had to go to Arrowe park A+E But not to the reception but to a specific ward were someone was expecting me with my paperwork

They even got a taxi for me

But on getting there I was dumped in the main reception.

Anyway I had to leave because I needed to get the bus. I did not have my wallet with me.

So five hours and never got to see a doctor

Very strange, if I had been sent by Taxi, I am sure I would have thought that serious enough to find the ward that I should have been at than getting the bus to somewhere else.

Hospitals are busy places, there are other people there who need help. Am sure they did not ignore you on purpose.

They paid for your taxi. That's good of them. They didn't get to see you...obviously others in need ahead of you more of a priority. Quick on WikiWirral to criticise despite the NHS.

Your work must have been slightly annoyed with the amount of time you had off.

I was sent there with suspected blot clot in my left leg.

Recently flown back on a long haul flight - 9 hours
I was told to go to the male acute ward, but it shut at 6.00pm

I then had to wait in the main A+E

After a couple hours waiting I asked how long it would take and was told the Doctor was busy

Well it was a Friday evening.

I have no complaints about any of the staff.

I will rest up till Monday and go and see my own Doctor

Maybe you could pay back the taxi fair as it was obviously a waste if you wouldn't wait around.

As for how long in A&E it's like asking how long is a piece of string.

Maybe next time you need treatment put a notice up asking people not to have crashes, heart attacks, strokes and so on.

Maybe it's just me but I think it's ridiculous to wait seven hours (two at a clinic and then five at A&E) for a potentially life threatening condition. Yes, I know hospitals are busy but we wouldn't stand this from any other service such as ambulance, fire brigade or police. The NHS keeps failing the patients with weekly reports of neglect and incompetence on a massive scale but everyone just shrugs their shoulders and says well, they're busy. Recently my elderly neighbour was released from Arrowe Park after a long stay with a broken hip. The nurses messed up her medication and I had to go back to the ward for them to sort it out. While waiting in the ward for two hours it was a real eye opener watching the staff, out of visiting times, drifting around, chatting to each other while ignoring bed ridden elderly patients asking for help etc.

The ward will have been waiting for you Nomad. I work in a doctor's and see this happening quite a bit. No I'm not one of those people on reception you have to "get past" to see a doctor!!
Uffda, my daughter works on one of the wards in APH and all I know is she works her backside off, without a word of thanks from some people, not that she thinks they should be eternally grateful to her. All the staff aren't the same as you describe.

Sure the NHS is a mess, however it is at a higher level than the nurses and other staff on the front line.

Maybe the nurses were talking about patients, medications, shift change over. Often there is little nurses can do until a Dr has said so and if I was on a ward and seen bed ridden elderly patients being neglected and ignored I wouldn't be here moaning about it, I would of reported it through the proper channels.

Having been a patient, a parent staying over, a visitor to dying family members and friends I have always in every situation found every nurse at Arrowe Park and Alder Hey to have the utmost respect for all patients and visitors.

Yes I get fed up waiting but that's down to political crap and not those dealing with the public day in day out hours on end.
