I was admitted into A&E following a head collision resulting in being knocked out and subsequent concussion and a 3 inch cut on my forehead, that inevitably needed 30 stitches.
After having the cut initially examined, I was left in A&E unsupervised and was allowed to fall asleep across reception chairs, which meant I missed my name being called. At no point was I awakened for my name, or had anyone try to prevent me from sleeping due to the seriousness of my head injury.
I was then left in reception following a reassessment with no pain relief, and post stitching, was told I could leave A&E without being given any advice on my symptoms or management of a head injury.
