"Nothing urgent about the urgent eye care dept"

I visited the Urgent eye car dept last week for a bad eye infection. Got seen by a Triage nurse after an hour then sat and waited for a further 4 hours to see a specialist before giving up and going home. One doctor on duty and one triage nurse. After 5 days I went to Moorfields in London to get my eye sorted. In and out in an hour and a half , 15 doctors on duty , loads of triage nurses and very swift service.
I appreciate that Moorfields serves London and so would have more people on duty but why such a difference compared to Lister?
