The A and E was so horrible! One doctor on duty and there's wasn't even that much of a wait and I was screaming in agony but I ended up being seen last and waiting for three hours in severe pain as it was not as "urgent" as they thought it was (examination by one nurse that thought I only had an irritation when I clearly said I feel it's a corneal ulcer). According to them people with certain age get to be seen first so people my age could just bite on a towel and shut up until further notice. I was very disappointed that I wasn't seen quicker and I don't know why corneal ulcer which can risk my eyesight was not considered "as urgent"
Despite all of that the nurse that finally saw me was very friendly and nice.
Next time I believe it's easier to go private if you are in severe pain as you will have to wait a lot!
