"Still not signed in after 40 mins"

About: St Thomas' Hospital / Accident and emergency

Is it really necessary to have '24 hours in A&E' showing on TV in the waiting room of the accident and emergency department? The real thing is traumatic enough, thanks. You need to improve the signing in system.

I came in at half past eight and I have been here forty minutes, still waiting for my number to be called.

I don't understand why patients aren't signed in on arrival, like in every other hospital.
