"waiting for hours just to get a suture"

About: Scarborough General Hospital

my mum fell down some concrete steps and deeply cut her knee open. she waited hours just to get a suture that takes not so long. there should always be someone coming in collecting the injured people but it was as if it were a dead place people in, no one out.

i would not recommend this hospitals A&E care because it is not at all at it's very best.
