Attended A&E on Friday evening with my Grandson after being asked to take him there via the NHS 111 service. Upon entering the room two nurses/doctor did an assessment of my Grandson, so far so good. Then the rest is history!!! In the two hours we sat there waiting to see the child specialist doctor only two other patients were taken into a cubicle to be seen, that's two in two hours!!! There were approximately eight other people in front of us so if we were to go by the two patience per hour scenario then we were due to be in for a long evening. As it happens we gave up and came home and took our chances... as it happens the NHS 111 were wrong.. The floor in the waiting room was a mess, wipes, tissues and a syringe which looked like used Calpol were on the floor, my Grandson wanted to play with the toys but we wouldn't let him God knows what he would have come away with.
