"Accident and emergency"

About: Countess Of Chester Hospital

I tried to visit the walk in centre this evening with my daughter. Very poor and confusing signage, main receptionist said "go to a&e, it's in their somewhere" .reception crowded and dirty. Had to take a ticket before even getting to speak to a member of staff.

Gave up after 20 mins and drove to arrowe park hospital on the wirral.

Chester is for life and death situations only.
