Attended earler today with my little boy who had a swollen and bruised ankle. The pre screening nurse was very uncaring and said that he probably did not have a broken ankle, but if we wanted to wait for a very long time for a Doctor, due to staff shortages, that he may decide to do an x-ray.
She was not prepared to discuss it at all, and seemed to think that because her colleagues were on sick leave and that she had a long queue that this was somehow our fault.
Consequencly we have returned home and if the swelling does not subside we will be going to a different hospital.
Just not good enough folks.
