"Attended A&E following a fall"

About: Lincoln County Hospital / Accident and emergency

(as the patient),

I visited A&E because I fractured my left wrist in a fall.

The staff were friendly, welcoming and efficient.

However, the waiting times could be improve.

Response from United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust

Dear Tony,

Thank you for the kind comments about your recent visit to A&E which I will be pleased to share with the team.

I apologise if there was a long wait to be seen and treated, unfortunately due to the demand on A&E services these delays do sometimes occur.

Hi Karen

I didn't mean it as a criticism - I realise A&E have an almost impossible task attempting to meet targets. What is needed is properly funded resources so such observations as mine would not need to be made!
