"A&E at 2.30am on a Saturday night."

About: University Hospital Lewisham

I took a friend to A&E at 2.30am on a Saturday night (25/07/2015), admittedly we were a little it drunk but the place was amazing. The member of staff at reception was lovely, we were just getting settled for a long wait on the red chairs and a doctor appeared. Waiting 5 minutes for an x-ray and 5 minutes for bandaging up. All the staff were lovely, professional but friendly and we were in and out in about 30 minutes, we waited longer for the taxi to get home. It may have been an unusually quiet Saturday night for them but the service for us was fantastic.
