"MIU, might be good when they are open."

About: Blyth Community Hospital

Bank holiday Monday, so I rang through to see if they are open. Yes they were, but on arriving after getting my son dressed in considerable pain I arrive to find them in darkness and a notice saying no service on the bank holiday. What is the point of having a switchboard I they cannot give the correct info!
