Sadly our experience of the A&E dept is very poor indeed. The understaffing is clearly not the fault of working staff there, but there appears to be a complete lack of organization for those who are. The standard of cleanliness in the waiting area is appalling- we've seen cleaner public toilets. There was also a distinct lack of compassion or basic understanding of my wife's condition which was clearly genuine. There seemed to be more attention given to apparent drunks and druggies who'd turned in after an afternoon session. My advice is don't go there unless you're desperate and on deaths door.
