Response from United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust

Dear Anon

Thank you for your comments. Unfortunately people are seen on priority order not on their arrival time. We do try to see children as a priority but cannot always ensure that happens. I can only apologise for the long wait you and your son encountered.
