"Spent 5 hours in A and E in great pain not life..."

About: Wythenshawe Hospital

Wonderful outcome but staying for hours shaking in pain which increased during the waiting time after I was assessed and put in waiting room .Didnt say anything as I appreciated emergencies were more important and a busy night People who have to wait and are elderly think perhaps further assessment needed to see if any deterioration ECGs showed irregularities apart from the injury I think due to shaking

Care eventually exceptional This is the second time I have experienced this Otherwise A and E exceptional and I am rarely ill .I was lucky at 4 30 am I returned home and medication sorted the shakes and ECG returned to normal

P s I was phoned to ask for my view of A @ E but just couldn't hear the recorded message unclear hence I am sending my review by e-mail

Emergency ambulance and paramedics superb doctors nurses ,technicians etc

Thankyou all
