I had to wait for 4 hours in extreme pain with no medication or place to lie down at Wonthaggi hospital in the early hours of the morning. I eventually had to catch a taxi home (without being seen) because I was too unwell to drive, after hearing people ahead of me had been waiting 7.5 hours and still hadn’t been seen.
I was suffering from an extreme migraine and my blood pressure was just under crisis level.
Numerous people were complaining about having to wait in pain for many hours (between 5 - 7.5 hours) and many left as I did.
This is not good enough and will lead to unnecessary deaths.
