"Waiting times for children poor"

About: Hull Royal Infirmary

Anything else?

Arrived to find waiting room full which was no suprise, however as this is usally the case you would think the hospital would staff to demand. I find it really hard to belive that some one thinks it is ok for children to sit suffering for hours on end. Adults expect to be sat waiting for hours in understaffed hospitals but i really think more focus should be given to children who do not understand and just want the pain to go away. Really diassapointed Hull Royal :( thanks to the friendly staff and this is in no way a critisism of the doctors and nurses.
