"Eye emergency"

About: Queen Alexandra Hospital

Had to visit eye department. Couldn't get there before 5pm due to traffic so directed to A&E. Not too busy but quick service and treatment within 1.5hrs. Had to attend next morning. Again very efficient with one exception. Pharmacy is a nightmare. Told 15 minutes but was 45 minutes for a prescription of eye drops. Tiny waiting room but easy enough to go away and come back
