I agree totally with another patient story on here. The booking in system in A&E is impossible for some one who is in pain. My friend could not stand at the reception desk due to pain, so I had to book him in, whilst also trying to keep an eye on him! He was in extreme pain. I returned to the desk several times to say how worried I was.
Eventually after at least 40 very distressing minutes someone took pity on us and got us in. Fair enough if it's busy people have to wait, but surely there must be a system in place for monitoring patients in the waiting area to see how ill they are? Once inside then the staff were great, it's the waiting area that leaves a lot to be desired.
