"A and E"

About: Royal Surrey County Hospital

Arrived at about 2.00pm on a Sunday with my son intial assesment was quick, staff were pleasant and helpful when we approached them and when they came to our room, however we left at about 7.45 with no confirmation that the ct scan ( after Xrays ) had pinpointed any issues, the radiologist and doctor who were delaing with our case seemed to have gone home.

The very pleasant doctor who took up our case phoned at about 9.15 to confirm there was no issue with my son's neck.

Had we have waited to find this out we would have been in a and e for 7 hours, as it was we felt 5 1/2 hours was enough he was not in pain and was bored and hungry.
