"Sunday evening"

About: Wythenshawe Hospital

Had to visit a&e last night after an accident. Waited 1 hour to see the triage nurse after booking in. The nurse was the most unhelpful nurse I have met, no bed side manner clearly didn't want to be there, the whole waiting room was complaining about this one individual. I had to ask 3 times for pain killers as the nurse kept saying I'm busy, what did worry me was that the nurse gave me painkillers without asking me if I had any allergies to medication. 3 hours in I had an X-ray and was seen very quick after that. Doctor was fantasic. At no point I saw a cleaner to come and clean the waiting room after a coffe was spilt.
