Where to start?

My fiance's sister lives out near springfield lakes in qld and she had something wrong and went to the doctors in which it was so bad they had to call an ambulance. Well they took her to 3 hospitals via ambulance all turning her down because they were full.

Those who know qld and see the distance travelled as she was turned down by logan hospital, gold coast and ipswich before being accepted in to the marta it which she was the last one admitted before turning more ambos down.

This shows the problems we have with our health system and in all is quite scary...

Anyone been fucked around or waited to be seen for a ridiculous amount of time

My mate got seriously fucked around, but by the cops not the health system. He was at home with his sister when her ex who she had just broken up with turned up demanding to see her, when she wouldn't come out of the house the guy got a machete out of his car and started slashing tyre's, destroying the framing around the front door and even threatening to kill my mates dogs. Anyway so my mate called the cops and half an hour later they still hadn't turned up so my mate called them and said he had a gun (which he does) and that he was going to kill him (which he wasn't). Needless to say they turned up in about 2 minutes after that so yeah.

That is so stupid mate, a lot of the time cops dont do anything

I remember one night me and db called a taxi and wait a good three hours for it, db rang the taxi company up and called the lady a fucking taxi slut haha then when we got picked up, this guy gave the driver a hard time about us waiting for 3 houtd and stopped and told him to get out and wouldnt...so the he dropped us at maccas. And on the way up the hill leaving the guy was hanging out of the car whilst the taxi driver driving...i think he was trying to get him out

My dad was having a heart attack a while ago(wasn't huge, but still fucking scary) so doing the right thing my mother instantly calls the ambos, only to be told there are no ambulences free. We couldn't drive him there as the car wasn't registered so we had to hop in a taxi. Piss poor if you ask me.

Logan hospital is bloody shocking. You have to wait for bloody ages almost every time, and the service is bullshit. Pretty much everyone there (The ones at the desk etc) are nearly always massive twats.

Everyone will probably have some terrible story about waiting for medical attention. I once waited from 12:30pm to 5:00pm in the emergency waiting room before deciding enough was enough and leaving, but i was able to go to the doctors office the next day.

Why does that matter? Your dad had a freaking heart attack.

That's like saying if the oldest child in a family is 16 and their Mum or Dad is in a critical condition that they should call the ambulance instead of driving. If one of my parents was in a critical condition, not only would I drive, I'd absolutely speed as well!!

Yeah mate like the others have said, I'd definitely take the car, if you had of been pulled over and the police saw your dad was having a heart attack they wouldn't have fined you, and even if they did you'd be able to get out of pretty easily.

All I'll say is F*** waiting for a taxi, they take even longer sometimes.

lol fair enough mate, don't be embarrassed, not like she could have anticipated your dad having a heart attack and accordingly stayed sober so as to be able to drive him to hospital because the emergency system was going to be to slow to respond.
