"A and e at Durham"

About: University Hospital Of North Durham

I went to a and e after falling from my horse and landing on my head, I was seen instantly by the triage nurse, but I was disappointed when there were a number of children who had jammed fingers in the door and a woman who had fallen on her wrist were seen by a doctor before me. Even though they signed in and I'm pretty certain a possible head injury should be a priority.
