What I liked
After my 7 year old son trapped his finger in the car door I rang 111 to find out what I needed to do. They advised me to take him straight to A&E to which I did. Arrival time 6.40pm. We saw 2 nurses over a period of 3 hours due to staff change over and I asked them if we could bandage him up at home but they insisted that the doctor did it so I thought fair enough at least I know he’s being looked after. So we sat and waited to see the doctor, eventually we were called and I think it was a triage nurse that attended to him and all she did was put a plaster on him!! What an absolute joke. He was asleep on my knee while the drunks rolled in and we got out of there at 10pm, no consideration that there was a 7 year old in there! It was an absolute disgrace. I have since been advised that the A&E at Wigan has a little ward for children to ensure they are looked at straight away. Fingers crossed I don't need to use A&E again but if I do I will be trying Wigan and give Chorley a very wide birth.
