About: Royal Stoke University Hospital Royal Stoke University Hospital Stoke-on-Trent ST4 6QG
Went up to my boyfriend who had been taken in after being attacked by a group of lads and had sustained clear head injuries, broken nose and was bleeding about 1.30 a.m. I arrived at 2.00 a.m. he had been seen by the triage nurse and was told to wait until called by one of the doctors. We sat in the waiting area for over 5 hours before we were seen! I had to go and re-do parking because of how long it took. Neither of us had had any sleep, no one kept us informed of what was going on. Others were in and out and we were left waiting. When we were eventually seen we were in and out in 10 minutes! Don't understand what took so long to get us in as the people being taken through before us were in and out the same yet in between people coming in and out there was a large delay before someone else was called in. We didn't end up leaving the hospital until 7.15 a.m. and still had to go in work for 8.00 a.m. Thought this was quite shocking considering a lot of the nurses were in and out chatting to each other. Take something entertain yourself if you need to go!! Even the Haywood gets you seen in at most 2 hours!!
