"Four Hours waiting in A&E"

About: St George's Hospital (Tooting) (London)

Our four hour wait outside A&E,after an accident to see a Doctor and get an X-ray was not the fault of the hospital or its staff.

The problem was one of timing (bad day and time of day to have an accident) and the other people that had a more urgent need to be seen by the Doctors before us.

However, the 5th hour was fruitful and I now have an appointment with the fracture clinic, later this week. :-) so aftercare is in progress.
