"6 Hours in A&E"

About: North Manchester General Hospital

Just spent 6 hours in A&E having a big fat swollen bruised leg looked at, X-rayed and cared for. I wouldn't say it was 6 hours of fun, but it was 6 hours spent with some amazing, genuine, friendly, kind, funny, skilled, caring, considerate people that made the hours less tedious. Fears were allayed, advice was given, questions were listened to and answered. From the ambulance staff that picked me from my doorstep, through the people in the hospital - A&E, X-ray, Doctors, nurses, assistants, trolley pushers - to the ambulance team that brought me back to my doorstep, I was treated with respect, good humour and genuine care. Thank you all - huge respect to every one of you.
