"Seen fast by polite staff"

About: Pontefract General Infirmary

Took my partner at 2am on a Friday with severe back pain. Receptionist friendly. Seen by doctor within 5 mins. Thorough examination and diagnosis made. Given medication which was all discussed and explained and home with 30 mins. All staff polite. I woke in A&E at anyother hospital and we would have a 5-6 hour wait to see a doctor on a normal day never mind a Friday woth all the drunks. Couldn't believe how quickly we were seen and how quiet it was.
