"Long wait for small child at A + E"

My 2 year old grand daughter suffered a head injury. I called NHS 24 who advised me to take her to A + E. They would fax the details across to speed things up.
After 1 1/2 hours we finally saw the Triage Nurse and we are now a further 1 1/2 hours later still waiting to see the Doctor. It is a disgrace that a young child with a head injury has to wait like this.
I am a big fan of the NHS but people's patience is wearing thin. NHS Fife need to sort this mess out now.
