My mother was taken in this morning around 0330 following a fall (see earlier review). When i eventually got through to to A&E (don't plan on ringing unless you have a lot of spare time on your hands) I was told they were waiting for results but nothing was broken. It is now 4:30 pm and I have not long come off the 'phone where I found she was still in A&E and that they were keeping her in as she has fractured her collar bone. They do not know what ward she will be going to, or when. So that is over 12 hours in A&E with no end in sight. Appalling
