"A very good experience of a and e on a Friday..."

About: Horton General Hospital

We took my 3 year old son to the Horton at 9.30pm last Friday. We were seen by a Staff nurse within 10 mins and were speedily assessed. In total we spent just under 2 hours in A and E - my son had 2 X-rays and a consultation with a hospital doctor. Parking was no problem at all. We had brilliant care and we were hugely impressed by the very competent staff.
