"A & E wait time for children's doctor"

About: Stepping Hill Hospital / Emergency Department

(as the patient),

Terrible way of dealing with patients. No patient management or fair allocation of Drs. I brought my daughter to be seen at 11pm, 4.30am still not seen.

I understand there maybe other patient with more urgent needs but there should at least 1 Dr allocated to children’s section to see the children in more reasonable hours.

6 hours of waiting time for antibiotics is unreasonable for children. Also if given an accurate waiting time upon arrival , patients can make arrangements for childcare , informing workplace and also decide whether to wait or see GP the next morning. By the time I am being seen, my GP practice will be open and I could have seen the GP.
