Arrived at A and E after accident to finger which split skin back to expose knuckle bone. Processed by receptionist just before 8pm on Monday 1st February, seen by Triage nurse approximately 8. 30, waited patiently finally seen by Doctor at 11. 45pm. Waited to have ring cut off finger by porter then waited again for doctor to return and dress injury. We eventually left the hospital at 12. 50am.
Cannot fault the staff friendliness and treatment but the waiting time was beyond belief!
