"4 hour wait with a dehydrating 9 week old"

About: Royal Oldham Hospital

I think it is discusting that I contacted the NHS Direct as I was concerned for my 9 week old daughter who hasn't been well to be told that I had to try and get as much fluid in to her as possible and be at the A&E dept within 1 hour...3 and a half hours after arriving I am still waiting to be seen, and might I point out it is now 3am!! Gutted about this really because when I was in having my baby 9 weeks ago I couldn't fault the hospital..!!
