With two small children I've been unlucky enough to have to use a and e a few times
Without fail reception are always awful. Talking about patients in front of people waiting to book in, ignoring new patients to finish a private conversation between themselves or complaining about doctors.
It's hit and miss the service from the doctors. We have had some that really seemed to care but on other occasions have been overly dismissive.
One doctor tried to send me home with antibiotics when I actually had a torsioned ovarian cyst that needed same day removal! Having experienced this before I told them exactly what was wrong but still had to argue to get a scan done.
All in all the experience is usually dreadful. We don't mind waiting, we understand its busy but when it is our turn try and at least listen to what we are saying rather than shove us out of the door.
