I presented at Angliss ED with tightness of chest and shortness of breath. After explaining to the triage nurse what was going on they told me to wait and I would be seen soon as respiratory concerns always received priority. I explained my cardiac history so I was fairly concerned. After waiting for an hour without seeing anyone and watching other people being attended to with what seemed less serious symptoms, I asked how long it would be till I saw someone as in the past I have always been ushered straight in as a precautionary matter being cardiac related. I was told that they did not know as they were very busy. I explained that I was led to believe that respiratory issues always took precedence to which they just shrugged their shoulders. This matter I feel was ludicrous and unacceptable as it completely contradicts the treatment I have received before. I then had no choice but tell them that I would present somewhere else and left. I trust that you give this matter your urgent attention as consequences could be life threatening.
Awaiting your response.
