I am not sure what† West Middlesex is playing at.† I had to take my wife there 3 weeks ago at approx† 8.30pm on a Saturday night.† Reception told us there was a 4 hour wait even though it didnít look too busy. They asked us if we wanted to wait!!† Not sure what they expected us to say....why would we go to A&E if we didnít† think we needed a Doctor?† The whole time we waited the TV screens reminded us that there was a† 4 hour wait.† As far as I could see some people who arrived after us who were† deemed to be Ďmore urgentí† were seen within half an hour to an hour.† I didnít have a problem with that as I fully appreciate some issues are more urgent than others.† My wife was seen after about 2 hours and by that time there were only 4 patients waiting. However, the TV screens still Ďwarnedí people that the waiting time was 4 hours.† As we were leaving the reception was still telling newcomers that the wait would be† 4 hours even though she could clearly see there were very few people still waiting.† Why would they do that?† Is it to try prove a point regarding statistics or......???† † I really canít figure out the motivation in wanting to make poorly people more anxious
