"Waiting 11 hours for surgery for finger injury"

(as the patient),

Cut the top off index finger and I went to Dewsbury A&E at about 11-30am, great service.

Then needed surgery, so was waiting at Dewsbury over 2 hours. Dewsbury could not get in contact with Pinderfields - nobody answering phone.

Finally got to Pinderfields, and waited until 11pm for them to say come back tomorrow we will do surgery.

Went back Saturday 7-30am, and got out at about 12-30 after surgery.

Staff at Dewsbury and Pinderfields very good, it was just the waiting...
