after my son fell and hit his head badly resulting in headache, vomiting and nausea and signs of shock we had a paramedic advise that as earliest out of hours gp was 6 hours after incident (2.30am) to go to A & E. On arrival we were seen by an uninterested nurse. the til to wait unmonitored. after 3 hours, 12am, I decided to take my son home, as he was tired and back to normal self. as a courtesy I told the nurse who said I'd have to wait until he'd seen the doctor. She then just walked off. another half hr passed and I told her again I was taking him home, she then threatened that social services would be contacted and Id have to sign a form. absolutely disgusted that a child would be kept waiting this long completely unmonitored and then to be talked to and threatened. Thankfully I have no fear of social services, and keenly anticipate this phone call. I received no copy of the form I had to sign. Furthermore a child in the room had a rash and was interacting freely with other children of all ages. again, this child and the other 5 children had not been seen. absolutely appauled.
