"waiting for hours with my 2 year old niece"

About: Hull Royal Infirmary / Paediatrics

(as a relative),

i took my niece to hri with elbow which had come out of socket took her for a xray and they put it back. she is two. i had to wait three hours to see a doctor, just to say she was fine. the system seems all wrong. she had nothing to eat since her dinner. i took her at five and it was ten past eight when i got out. she is a child, who goes to bed at six thirty. they should have a serious and minor and one just for cuts etc. it is disgusting the time you have to wait for a simple injury like this one. i hope things will change soon, so we get a better health service.
