My daughter attended Wansbeck A&E after breaking her arm. She was seen swiftly in A&E and immediately transferred to the Childrens Unit. In the Unit she had good attention from the nurses and the nurse practitioner and they quickly provided pain relief and arranged for her to be put in a plaster. A quick visit (only a short wait) to Xray and then she was seen by the Orthopaedic doctor who arranged for her to have an operation the next morning. The next day we came back to the Children's Unit for pre-op - again the nurses were great and the anaesthetist was friendly, reassuring and funny to put her at ease. The porters and theatre staff were good and the operation was a success. And finally the plaster technicians were great and made sure her plaster was comfortable. All round excellent service.
