What I liked
I accompanied my friend who had suffered a fall and broken her nose. I was pleased that the ambulance arrived very promptly and that the care from the paramedics was efficient and businesslike.
What could be improved
During our three hour wait, my friend's nose bled rather copiously. I should have liked somewhere other than litter bins to dispose of the many soiled tissues (which I obtained from the public toilet). Some bin dedicated to blood soaked tissues would have been useful.
The only possibility for refreshment during our wait was a fizzy drink machine. I should have been more grateful for a tea/coffee/hot chocolate machine.
