"5 hours 15 minutes and still waiiting"

About: Hull Royal Infirmary

having booked into A&E at just before 10pm we were told there was a 3 hour wait. After the 3 hours we were told there were 15 people ahead to be seen. After 30 people were seen, we were told 5 ahead. After a further 10, all of which were seen within an hour, we are still waiting and new arrivals are taken in almost straight away. Now I am sure some more immediate cases needed to be seen and I am sure there are a lot of good stories of our NHS but this tonight is a disgrace.
