Busy hospital ward leaves boy waiting six hours for bed

The parents of a two-year-old boy who had to wait six hours because doctors couldn't find him a hospital bed are demanding an apology.

Callum Giles became sick last week and when his condition worsened, his parents John and Marie rushed him to Southampton General Hospital.

Despite battling a blood infection, being hooked up to a drip and lying across two chairs pushed together, his parents were told by medical staff that he would have to wait because there was no room.

John and Marie say they are 'absolutely appalled' at the care Callum was given.
