"Very Good Service on Visit to A&E with Eldery..."

About: Arrowe Park Hospital

My 77-year old mother had to be taken to A&E after a fall while visiting us from Yorkshire. A&E was very busy and we feared the worst when (with several people ahead of us in the queue) the first call we heard for someone for treatment came after a 25 min wait. However our fears were unfounded as the people waiting were subsequently seen in quick succession. Once seen, my Mum was treated with respect and understanding, the treatment was quick and caring from all (doctor, nurse to remove rings from fingers, x-ray, nurse putting on plaster cast). All done within 3 hours.
