"No xray at weekends!"

About: Orsett Hospital

After reading other reviews on this page, my husband attended minor injuries at 09.20am so that he would not have a wait (thanks for info, really helped). The unit opens at 10am but you can get in there earlier and get on the waiting list. However when my husband got there, there is a notice that says "No xrays at weekends". Just giving you all the heads up, so you dont waste your time as my husband has today. Subsequently my husband left the unit and is on his way to Basildon A&E to join the masses! What a shame that a minor injury unit does not have this valuable facility at the weekends.
