What I liked
What could be improved
could have actually treated me or at least taken a look!
I visited the A&E minor injuries department on 26th September, I arrived at 7:35, the department was meant to be open until 8pm.
I went to reception(waiting area was dark all lights off) Lady I spoke to said I was probably too late but she went to get a nurse.
She told me they had no x-ray department, that it was closed. She said there was no one to examine me, but that even if the x-ray department was open they wouldn't x-ray ribs anyway! she said the department was useless really and told me to visit my g.p
Which I did the following day and was told I had broken ribs.
Another gentleman came in to the unit after me, he was also told the department was closed.
no one took my details, the nurse didn't examine me, even after I requested she have a look.
I was very disappointed by the lack of concern, they seemed more interested in getting rid of me!
