About: Hull Royal Infirmary

(as a relative),

What I liked

Both the nurse and doctor had good level of knowledge and experience and we where give good care.

What could be improved

Had to take my girfreind to A&E arived at around 11:30 on friday night and got treated around 05:00 on saturday morning.

From speaking to the Doctor in A&E he informed us that he was the only doctor on that evening.

I think staffing levels need to be addressed
