My 5 y/o daughter fell and broke her arm while on Holiday in Scilly, within half an hour she and I were being airlifted to Truro. At the RCH we were ignored and repeatedly made to wait for hours. She was left without any form of splint and never saw a doctor. We were told it needed a cast by a HCA who admitted he hadn't been trained to out casts on but was going to do it anyway as they were busy. The children's nurse refused to get her pain relief because he was too busy. We were eventually discharged at half ten at night with no accommodation, no transport back to Scilly, and no knowledge of the local area. The emergency staff were all outstanding, the hospital staff were indifferent at best, and downright rude at worst.
