took my poorly little girl to A&E with a very nasty rash and a temp. Was seen by the triage nurse who couldn't take any obs due to my child being all worked up. Said she would return and never did! It was over the teatime period and not one nurse came to see if my 15month old even needed a drink! And it wasn't that they were all tied up as we saw them plenty! Waited 5 hours (even though they have a 4 hour target to meet) eventually saw an out of hours gp who was fairly blunt and seemed annoyed when my child became distressed! I ended up going to see my own gp the next day and my child was diagnosed with hand foot and mouth!! If I'd known we were waiting for the out of hours gp I could have taken my child home and tried to feed her and returned instead of waiting all that time on a tiny room!
