I had to take my one years old to Queens children a&e last night. First, nurse told us that we will need to wait around 2 hours to see a doctor. I thought that it is reasonable for winter time and I can handle 2 hours wait with ill little one. But after 3 hours wait we were told that waiting time would be 4 - 4.5 hours in total. Few kids were vomiting in the waiting room, parents just trying to do their best in a cramped waiting area. first time in my life I thought that I need to find a private family doctor.
Why can't you have few GPs at children a&e, just to managed milder cases? 4-5 hours wait for kids???? It's unacceptable!!!
