"Ridiculous absolute Joke!"

About: Dewsbury & District Hospital

Came to Dewsbury A&E with my little brother n nas his plaster had broken apart.We only got told the previous week he needed plaster so his bone could go back in place. As we attended on the 7th Feb for about 11.45 we waited 5 hours the nurse had an attitude problem. Kept leaving us unattended. When it says on the leaflet they give to us if the cast is tight or broken come in to the closest hospital. What a waste of time, we finally got someone to see us a nurse who clearly didn't know how to put a plaster on which now is falling apart! When they were putting the plaster on another nurse came and said take him off the system once your done, the one that was doing the plaster turned around said is it breached very unprofessional
