My housemate had a fall at home and was knocked unconscious, I woke him up and he appeared severely concussed, I rang the non emergency 111 number and they said he needed to been seen with in the hour. 4 hours later at A&E Northern General we had only been seen by an assessing nurse not a Dr and left in the waiting room.
After going to a walk in centre 24 hours later they said this was completely unacceptable and he should have been seen within an hour and kept under observation not in the waiting room.
He received below an acceptable level of care and luckily hasn't had any complications yet but it could have resulted in him being so much worse.
Completely unacceptable will not be using this service again if I can help it! Sort it out!
