About: Calderdale Royal Hospital

Sat at A&E for 4+ Hours (waiting time 1 hour 30 minutes displayed), Everyone went before us even those who had been booked in for mere minutes! Spoke to reception only to be told "i only book people in go round there and ask someone else", i did only to find find all the nurses/doctors standing around talking all of whom ignored me completely! Eventually left having not been seen at 12:30am. A child had also been sick on the floor while we were booking in, when we left it was still on the floor having been covered up with wads of paper... I thought hospitals were ment to be clean! Absolute disgrace of an hospital i would have been better seen/cared for at the local animal shelter!
