"Assessment - no logical order"

About: Stamford & Rutland Hospital

Visited the minor injuries unit under recommendation from a friend. Waited 45 minutes and still not been seen, reception simply said I was still on the list.

This was despite 3 other people being seen and dealt with before I had gone in.

I have had to leave as needed to get back to work and how long was it going to be after I finally got assessed.

let's hope that my injury manages to heal itself ok without any medical help.
