"Very happy with standard of care at RAH A&E"

I was admitted to A&E at RAH one afternoon in January. It was very busy and there were some 'challenging' patients (plus a fair few police officers! ).
I wouldn't be able to cope with working there; the RAH staff can and do, very ably. They were highly professional, competent, helpful and good-humoured. The surroundings may not be the most salubrious but I can't knock the care in any way.
There was quite a wait to transfer me to a ward, which I mention as it meant me taking up A&E space that might have been used for a new admission. Obviously this situation is common to most hospitals, I would imagine, and it would be good to see the NHS addressing this for the future (personally, I would be happy to be in a designated 'holding area' for those awaiting transfer to wards assuming I was in a stable condition).
