I arrived with my 3 year old son with a sore foot after falling down a few steps, we were seen in 5 minutes by the very pleasant triage nurse who soothed my very anxious son with her manner We were sent to X-ray. Within 5 minutes, we were in X-ray and the lady was very patient and kind to my son and managed to get him to sit still immediately for his 'pictures'. She talked to him throughout the procedure to keep him calm. We then went back to the main waiting area and I was expecting a long wait. Within 10 minutes we were sat in the paediatric waiting room which was kitted out with television, DVDs, books, toys, enough to keep my two quiet for quite a while. After 10 minutes we were being seen by a lovely child friendly doctor, who listened to me and my son to assess his injury. Thankfully there was nothing seriously wrong and he sent us on our way with advice on how to deal with a sore foot!
