"my son"

About: Pinderfields General Hospital

Anything else?

i had taken my 7 month old son into A&E in the early hours of the morning with high temp and general discomfort he was in pain he wasnt so bad when i got there but no the less we were still sat in the waiting area from 2.40am to 5.15am before we saw a doctor my baby was so tired and they didnt offer a bed to put him in which i thought was not fare for a baby. Eventually when we did see a doctor he acted like i was an over reacting parent and did nothing even though my son has a history of UTI's he checked my sons ears and stomach and told me i could take him home i think it was the end of his shift and he was more bothered about getting home to bed. I had to take my son to our GP the next day where it was discovered that he had indeed like i said had a UTI now in my opinion if they had checked that in A&E he could have been put on anitbiotics straight away and a further trip to the GP could have been avoided. This is why im not happy with my experience and i work in the hospital so im going to go in in person at let them no
