I had to bring my young daughter to A&E as she had injured her knee but had the added complication of having to take my mum to an out-patients appointment in Neurology at the same time.
I explained my predicament of needing to be in 2 places at once the X-ray department were very accommodating and A&E staff were brilliant and kept an eye on my daughter whilst I attended the Neurology appointment.
Only issue I had was the lack of wheelchairs as my daughter was in a significant amount of pain and we had to hobble up to the fracture clinic before coming back to A&E for crutches, apart from that staff were very good and helpful and worked hard to help make an already stressful day a bit more manageable.
Thank you :-)
