What could be improved
I booked into the A & E department at 10:50pm and waited. I waited two and half hours without being seen. I wasn't even seen by a nurse. Other hospital that I have been to, you have to book in at reception then you see a nurse who dresses wounds, offers pain drugs and make initial assessment so that you can been seen quicker.
However Stafford offers none of this, the most you get is a seat and a very nice receptionist and a very long wait in which you drink, eat food and use the bathroom by which time you have lost the will to live.
