What I liked
Was very quick and efficient
What could be improved
Not enough Car Parking spaces. Although my visist did conincide with visiting times.
Having read some of the previous comments I was very sceptical about attending the A&E department but I have nothing but praise so felt compelled to write a review. Attending for a minor accident I was seen after approximately 1 hour. Waiting times were estimated at 2-3hours. Having been assessed I was referred for an x-ray and was called almost immediately for this. By the time I got back to the waiting area I was called through to see the nurse practioner again to review the x-ray. Having been assessed and discharged I was referred to one of the Hospital Clinics. On ringing the next day for an appointment at the clinic I was surprised to get an appointment within a couple of days. My overall experience of the hospital on this occasion was that it was very efficient. All the staff I encountered were friendly and professional.
