"Long wait in A&E my daughter"

I have had numerous experiences at Barnsley A&E with 2 of my children & have only had 1 or 2 very minor issues with my care.
However, last night at around 6: 30pm I arrived at A&E with my almost 4 year old daughter. After around 45 minutes we were taken into a booth, which was satisfactory.
Her stats were taken & we were told she would need a nebuliser (which I suspected). We were also told that the childrens ward was full, so we would probably have to be transferred to Sheffield. Fair enough. This was before 8pm. We saw an on duty doctor who put my daughter on oxygen. We then had to wait until 2: 30am before seeing another doctor, & we were transferred to Bassetlaw hospital at a little after 4am.
This was a ridiculous length of time, we had waited over 6 hours to be transferred. I was not even offered a drink until well after 2am.
My daughter & I were exhausted.
It was after 6am before I was given a bed.
Worst experience at Barnsley hospital ever. Not happy.
