Arriving at A&E on 15/12/2015 my father was checked in and x-rayed pretty quickly.
But that is where the quickness finished. After around 6 hours of waiting and still no doctor had been to see my father.
One of nurses on duty came to us to say he would be staying over that night and he would be seen by the doctor before going on to the ward but no time was given.
When my father was admitted to wansbeck hospital A&E in May he was seen a doctor within 3 hours and admitted on to a ward.
Even this morning a simple task of trying to find out information about my father has been a fiasco.
Passed from piller to post this was after trying for 2 hours to get through to the hospital.
I personally feel this new hospital does not work.
To many areas filtering into one hospital.
