My partner arrived at Tameside Hospital this morning at 6am. he was told by the triage nurse that the wait was one and a half hours.. after sitting there for 2 hours he asked again how long it would be, he has just been told that the wait is 3 hours from when you arrive!! while he has been sat there there has been one patient seen to... how can you predict that it will take 3 hours when the place isnt even busy? Are the Doctors in bed still??? i myself visited Salford Royal A&E at 6am last year and was seen to within 15 minutes!!
Are they stating 3 hours so it doesnt breach the 4 hours???
