"Needed help from A&E"

About: Leighton Hospital

I fell in the garden and hit my head - blood everywhere initially . Needed A&E haven't been there for many many years and was quite surprised at the modern facilities . It was Friday evening and needed to wait 2 hours ( notices explain that is the waiting time . They cleaned the wound , glued the split together and gave me a leaflet explaining the unlikely situations that could occur in the next few days.

Treated with respect and kindness by all - it was a positive experience ( if a trip to A&E can ever be good )

Thank You !!!
