I feel that Leighton lacks any true care for its patients; it fails to triage its patients efficiently and normally your sat for an hour plus just to be triage'd. So you could be sat there bleeding in your brain, and they still fail to see you. My niece (6 months old) had a fall, and had taken them over 2 hours to see her! After seeing her, we approached the reception desk who advised us that they unsure if they should send her to Minors or Majors and that was the cause of the delay!! A personal experience of my own was when I went in regarding a throat infection. Upon seeing a doctor, I advised them I was allergic to something, and was rushed to hospital when I was younger after taking it. I advised him it was on my record, but I was unsure what it was... He didn't bother checking, and told me to take these tablets. 2 hours later after taking some, I was taken back into hospital where A&E had to resolve their mess up!
