"7 Hours in Derby Royal"

About: Royal Derby Hospital

After being sent by the GP who rang ahead, it took 5 hours to see a doctor, and a further 2 hours wait for the medication he provided. Arriving at 7.00 pm Friday evening, leaving at 2.00 am Saturday morning, quite simply appalling. The department isnt listed below, it was the Medical Assessment Unit
