GIVEN that from Tuesday June 12 till Wednesday June 13, I had a 12-hour wait to see a doctor at the casualty department of the Royal Gwent Hospital, I have to ask why when I did see a doctor did he tell me ultimately there was nothing they could do for someone who was in pain and kicked me to the kerb? Is there anyone else who has visited the Royal Gwent Hospital and experienced what I went through?
