NHS in crisis: Gok Wan’s auntie suffers agonising 7-hour wait on Scots hospital A&E trolley

GOK Wan’s family have told of their fury after the TV star’s frail aunt lay in agony on a trolley at a Scots hospital for seven hours.

Mary Wan, 81, was taken to Glasgow Royal Infirmary after complaining of excruciating leg pains at her nursing home in the city. But relatives were horrified when she was left until early in the morning with no food or medication, despite suffering a stroke just weeks before. Gok’s cousin Charles, 51, who is Mary’s son, said: “My mum is an elderly Chinese woman who doesn’t speak any English. I have to speak up for her.

“For someone of her age to suffer in pain for that time is not on. She is the best mum in the world and deserves to be looked after properly.”
