I was brought to A&E by ambulance on what they described as a quiet night, with a very painful leg injury. Staff (and the paramedic) were brilliant and very caring. Couldn't have asked for more. My return next day was marred by the sheer distance frm the front door to the Fracture Clinic. Which genius decided on that location? Had to sit near the front entrance and wait for a wheelchair - the receptionist helped me into it but with no porters around, I had to wait for my husband to eventually find a parking space and then wheel me down, 30 minutes late.
