What could be improved
I asked to be telephoned when a decision had been made whether my 82 year old father was to be kept in or was coming home, despite ringing A&E twice for updates, an hour later my father rang me from home, he had taken a taxi home. I wanted to collect him myself.
The hospital is about to spend money to find out what the public think about areas of service in the A&E department. I would be more than happy for every aspect of A&E to be absolutely dreadful if the waiting times could be reduced dramatically down to, say 1 hour instead of the customary 5 hours or more.
