BLEEDING AND VOMITING CONTINUES BUT NO AMBULANCE CALLED BUT WE BOTH MY HUSBAND AND I CALLED BY PHONE AND TOLD THERE IS AN EMERGENCY. SOMEONE HITS SOMETHING IN YOUR SON'S EYES AND YOU NEED TO TAKE HIM A & E WITHIN 45 MINUTES BECAUSE YOU HAVE CAR. MY HUSBAND TOOK MY SON STRAIGHT AWAY FIRST EALING HOSPITAL AND THEY SENT STRAIGHT AWAY WESTERN EYE HOSPITAL AND SAME DAY TRANSFERRED TO ST. MARY HOSPITAL. ONE WEEK MY SON FACED WITHOUT MOVING JUST REST IN BED AND THAN TRANSFERRED TO ST.
