"My son's treatment within a A and E"

About: Pilgrim Hospital / Accident and emergency

(as a parent/guardian),

I took my 2year old son to pilgrim a & e he had an operation a few months prior to attending...he had been crying in pain all day and was clearly distressed so when we arrived at hospital we waited 7hours to see someone! When we finally got in the doctor just looked at him and gave him medication and told us to take him home!

He received no examination or tests! The next day we went to see his consultant who diagnosed a bone infection! As a hospital this should of been picked up if he was examend properly he's a 2yr old baby he should of been treated better.
