After seeing an out-of-hours emergency doctor yesterday afternoon, they whizzed my 2-year-old son off to the A&E at the JR. They were expecting us and took us straight through to the Children's emergency. He was seen straight away, checked over by a doctor immediately and prepped for blood tests. Although we had to wait several hours for him to be assessed - we were kept informed and knew it was because there were two other children more sick and a doctor not in. After his assessment we were sent to the CDU and again it was fantastic. A bed for me next to my son and continuous checks throughout the night. Again - we had to wait for his assessment in the morning for several hours - but again we didn't mind as the staff kept us informed and were friendly. All-in-all, felt we were very looked after and I couldn't believe how thorough all the staff were.
