    The big question is why a person in critical condition was sent to Southampton hospital. Seven miles/15 mins to Reading, 45 miles/1hour 15mins to Southampton. What part of the system failed and caused a man in critical condition to be denied access to a doctor for an extra 60 minutes? This is what should be investigated and reported - the public has a right to know.
