"Western Infirmary A and E/ AMU experience"

About: Western Infirmary/Gartnavel General / Accident & Emergency

(as a parent/guardian),

My daughter had injured her finger playing sport, and the school nurse had advised she go to A&E as there was a chance it was fractured.

Having historically had long waits at the Western, I was expecting a long evening, however we were taken within 10 minutes of arrival, seen, x-rayed and treated and away from the hospital in just over an hour. The longest part of the experience was for x-ray, and that was only because they had to redo one of them.

I would just like to thank the staff for making this such an easy experience.
