I had a bad asthma attack. Rang 999 and used my nebuliser. Paramedic arrived after an hour and advised us there were no ambulances available..so we took ourselves to Pilgrim Hospital in Boston.
Arrived at 6.15pm feeling extremely ill. I finally received a nebuliser and if steroids at 1.am Then admitted for 6 nights with infective asthma.
This is an unacceptable delay in urgent treatment. Has anyone else had similar experience. We cannot accept this as simply "the NHS is in crisis" excuse.
