Took child to a&e. Followed signs to non respiratory a&e. Went through the doors and there was barriers partially blocking. Went through, seen loads of people sitting waiting. Could not see a reception. Walked through and finally asked a nurse who told me to wait out with the others. Came back out soon after and was very nice. Told me I should have went to another building, but to just go down the corridor, as the ones in the other building would just send me back here anyway (seems like a bad idea to have people running all around the COVID hospital with an emergency). Finally got to a&e and my experience was fine. On the way out I follow signs to exit. Barrier is now blocking. I ask a girl working there and she tells me to just squeeze past barrier. I do this with child and I near hit her head on a shutter as I lift her over the barrier and then trip and almost fall.
I understand these are difficult times, but someone needs to sort this out before a huge problem arises.
