"First timer at our New Community Hospital"

About: East Riding Community Hospital

Arrived at 4:15pm having left work early to get to see a doctor. Greeted by a nurse (Light Blue Uniform) advising me that all patients were being diverted to Hull Royal. Was asked what my problem was and advised that I had fallen and I was having problems with my chest. The Nurse then told me that there were no X-Ray facilities at the hospital. Your website clearly shows that facility (along with Ultrasound / MRI and CT scanning) available and in fact has some positive feedback on the X-Ray side of things! So disappointed but also really concerned that a brand new facility is unable to cope with a current Community population which is set to boom in the not too distant future. Shameful is all I can say!
