I had to attend the A&E with a relative who was unwell during the night on March 17th. It was extremely busy and took a while to be seen. While we were waiting for the Doctor the nurses looked after my family member as best they could and got her pain killers straight away so she was not too distressed they also took blood tests which was great as when the doctor came to see us all the results we back. I thought we were looked after well considering how busy it was. My only fault would be that there don’t seem to be enough staff to look after all the people who were in. There were people on trollies on the corridor and the nurses trying to look after them looked rushed off their feet. I feel me and my relative luckily had good experience but it seemed that there are not enough staff to look after all the people properly
