"Accident and Emergancy"

About: University Hospital Aintree

I recantly was brought into the A&E with a head injury I also injured my shoulder and elbow. The service upto the seeing the doctor was fine but the then when the doctor came in to see me I explained what had gone on and also that I went 8 months with a undiagnoised subdural hematoma due to a head injury, to which he slated the hospital that did this and said I needed a scan of my head due to me knocking myself out, and also a xray on my shoulder and possibly elbow. After then sitting in assessment ward for 3 hrs to were there was used needles on the floor and blood splateres on the floor next to my bed, I was given a leaflet about head injurys and sent on my merry way. The bit that I cant understand is why my local hospital was slated and yet no xrays or or scans were done at this hospital.
