"A and E at midnight"

About: Arrowe Park Hospital

came to A and E in pain with broken arm only a few people waiting but had a long wait. Once I was seen the treatment was excellent with pain relief and x rays taken speedily. My thanks to the doctor who reset my arm - it was a mess and he put it back together perfectly. I was out of it most of the time but the staff worked together well. I would have appreciated having info about the after effects of the medication I was given as next day I was very sick and slept all day - my husband was at home but patients could be warned they might expect side effects. Thanks to all the staff your work was much appreciated
