"uninspiring visit to a and e"

About: The Princess Royal Hospital (Telford)

Anything else?

The waiting area was dirty, the triage nurse was rude and extremely unfriendly and the junior doctor missed a very easy diagnosis and gave me incorrect information. I self diagnosed after still being in pain a few days later and my diagnosis was confirmed by my own g p a week or so later.
