NHS in crisis: Family of woman left lying on A&E trolley for 16.5 HOURS told to bring in PILLOWS for her

THE family of a woman left on an A&E trolley for 16-and-a-half hours were told to bring in pillows for her, an insider says. The source told the Record: “They were told none were available in the hospital.” He said the woman endured the nightmare wait in accident and emergency at Glasgow’s Victoria Infirmary on Sunday night after suffering a head injury. And he added: “She was told there were no beds in the whole of Glasgow”. The insider also told how another female patient was left on a trolley for 17-and-a-half hours in a room normally used for putting on plaster casts. The report will add to fears of a deepening crisis in Scotland’s A&E units. And it’s the latest in a series of worrying incidents at the Victoria’s casualty unit.
