I went to A & E on the evening of Thursday 20th August at 7.00pm.
Understandably, there was an hour and a half wait before I got to the triage stage.
I had broken my wrist and was in severe pain.
The Triage nurse was lovely and explained what would have to be done (manipulate the bone back into position).
The technician in xray was very pleasant as were all the staff I encountered throughout the long night including the person who pushed the trolley and the reception staff.
However, huge thanks to the doctor and team.
Between us, my best friend Jan and I managed a giggle or two, although the whole experience for me was pretty horrendous having never broken anything before.
A and E is never going to be quick but we left feeling I had been taken good care of.
Thank you everyone.
