My son looked very out of place in the children's A&E being 15 and in his rugby kit. However, he'd injured his ankle and was in pain - the ambulance crew who treated him on the field and brought him in were caring and very efficient. We were booked through to the A&E and despite the whole place being very busy we were there for only about two hours in which time he was examined, X-rayed, the break found, a cast applied, shown how to use crutches and booked in for a follow up at Out Patient's. Many thanks to the ambulance, crew, the nurse who saw him and the person who did his cast. Brilliant job everyone!
