"I don't think any one likes ..."

About: Furness General Hospital

(as a relative),

What I liked

I don't think any one likes to be sat in A&E for 4 hours waiting to see a doctor

What could be improved

just about everything but actualy having a doctor in the department i think is a must .

and actualy having beds availible instead of leaving patient's lying in the coridor i also think is a must!!.

Anything else?

oh ! and sanding the floor and re covering whilst patient's are bieng seen diden't go down to well.

especialy since my partner was suffering from a serious chest infection!!!!
