Our child was a patient in Ward B1 at the Bolton Royal Infirmary. Referred by our GP as an urgent case at 10.20 in the morning, and were told that a bed would be available from 12.00. When we arrived at 13.00, a bed was still not available and so our child had to wait in the playroom until 16.00, and was finally admitted at 18.30. I was very angry to have to wait for 2 and a half hours before given a bed for our child. In total, we waited for 3 and a half hours before seeing a doctor. I was disappointed, not only with the waiting, but also with the cleanliness of the room and the facilities for a parent staying with their child.
