Arriving on Saturday 8th Nov unable to walk I was greeted by a friendly security guard who immediately got me a wheel chair so my husband could push me inside. When inside the lady on reception was also friendly and very efficient. Sitting in the waiting room for less than an hour was comfortable and there was a big tv to keep us entertained. The first nurse quickly assessed me and gave me paracetamol which helped with the pain. From then I was dealt with by a very efficient nurse practitioner who was kind and thorough. I was quickly sent to x-Ray, where I didn't have to queue and back to the nurse who bandaged my broken foot, made sure I was comfortable using crutches and organised a prescription of cocodamol for me and a trip to the plaster unit on Monday. Although it was a shame I couldn't be plastered there and then I have managed fine with the bandaged foot and the helpful leaflets given to me. Having not been to an a&e since a child, I couldn't be happier with the care and treatment I received. Brilliant all round.
