"Head Trauma"

About: Airedale General Hospital

I had a fall and gashed my head

The ambulance was at my house within 5 mins the two ambulance staff could not have been better they were great

This is the only negative I have - we got to A&E but the ambulance staff had to wait nearly an hour to hand me over to a nurse what a waste of skilled manpower obvious staff shortage

When i was assessed it took almost 4 hours to see someone to get stitched up.

Again I am not complaining It is just a fact

The nurse was so good both my wife and myself were completely at ease they were really good at their job
