"A&E disgusting"

About: The Whittington Hospital

My daughter and her boyfriend went here as he had fallen off his bike and she thought he may need stitches.

They waited for over 5 hours and by the time they were seen it was difficult to tell what was dried blood and what was dirt. The wound was cleaned, but not very well, but not stitched.

So waited 5 1/2 hours for nothing.

What a waste of time.

Why make someone wait that length of time for nothing, The wound should have been assessed at the beginning to save them waiting all that time.
