My daughter brought me to A&E due to a fall at home. The wait in A&E was very long. I had to wait in reception area for 9 hours in a wheelchair which was uncomfortable. Once I was moved into yellow bay the nurse offered me a hospital bed. The staff in A&E are very good but if there was a T.V or some sort of entertainment whilst waiting in reception it would be help the time pass when it is extremely busy. The food in the shop is expensive and I think it should be cheaper for patients as I had no choice but to purchase food from there due to long wait in reception area. I was then moved to 2 north and the staff are brilliant. The consultant explained everything and ensured I understood the procedure before sending me for my MRI scan. The meals in the ward are very tasty and I am really enjoying them.
