"Daughter of 10 months with a head injury and cut."

About: Princess of Wales Hospital

I rarely ever write reviews but I am so annoyed by the waiting time at the princess of Wales hospital that I felt I had to write a review. My daughter of 10 months fell and bumped her eye and head which was cut. My partner took her straight to the hospital as it was a head injury with a baby, he was not seen for nearly 3 hours and my daughter was screaming, he was informed that because it was Sunday the waiting time was longer because the hospital was busy from the night before. Sorry that is not good enoug, a child and elderly should always have priority over drunken falls. I think the staff ( nurses) are put under so much pressure there that they need to employ more staff. Surely that's why we pay our tax?.
