Visited A&E for a swollen, painful toe. Everything went well at the start, was seen to fairly swiftly except when I was seen by a doctor, they were very unsure about my injury. I was taken to have an x-ray (which was supposed to happen before seeing my doctor, apparently - disorganised) The results, which weren't shown to me, didn't come out well enough to determine what was wrong and the doctor guessed that it was a fracture, but will need to see another doctor in the week, and in the meantime I should get bandaged / prescribed medicine. So I was sent to the back of the clinic alone and was left to wait for 4-5 hours, didn't see the doctor again, until I finally asked who was supposed to see me. In the end I was left to leave in pain and wasn't given any medication / guidance for my injury and will have to wait for a phone call in 3-4 days to book an appointment. I personally don't think this is good enough and won't be going back.
