What I liked
The hospital appeared to be clean. you are assessed quickly by the
What could be improved
Waiting time in childrens a&e to see a doctor is ridiculous.
My son had an minor injury so couldnt understand why the asessment
nurse couldnt deal with it ie stop the bleeding until the doctor
sees him. had to wait nearly 2hours for a doctor whilst my 18month old still
bleeding from injury. He was hungry, gone past his bed time and started
to get cranky so decided to discharge him in the end praying a scab would quickly form to
stop the bleeding.
But looking around the waiting room there were lots of parents with children with
more severe injuries also waiting for hours. This was the first time i had to
visit a&e for my son an hopefully the last. They dont even provide a waiting time to give
an idea of how long to wait.
