"I have unfortunately found myself in..."

About: Whiston Hospital

What I liked

I have unfortunately found myself in Whiston A & E twice over the last 2 months, 1st time i had slept in my contact lenses and damaged the cornea of both my eyes, i was in extreme pain and could not see, I only waited 5 minutes to see a doctor, who put anesthetic drops in both eyes straight away to relieve the pain, my eyes were thoroughly examined and i was sent home with medication, in and out the hospital within an hour!

2nd trip... suspected broken hand, I seen triage nurse within 10 minutes of arriving at the hospital, she was really friendly and happy in her work, i was sent for an xray, within 10 minutes i was infront of a doctor being told i had a tendon problem, he too was happy in his work and very pleasant. From arriving in A&E to leaving took a total of 45 minutes, that included the x ray. I have nothing but praise for the staff and the hospital is spotlessly clean. All in all on both occasions i was treated quickly and efficiantly, couldnt have asked for more, thank you and keep up the good work xx
