"not good"

About: Lister Hospital

What I liked

staff was friendly but was booked in then saw the nurse in little room and said would be a 2half hour waiting time

i waited 3 nearly 4 hours and then i was not waiting anymore i knocked to tell them was going home and waited outside for 10mins at that point was very angry as was in alot of pain so i just left

What could be improved

waiting time and telling u how long u have to wait should not be any longer

Response from Lister Hospital

We're very sorry that this was the case. Whilst it is important that our staff keep those waiting in our A&E department aware of any delays, of course they are also dealing with life-threatening emergencies that sometimes mean that people with less urgent conditions have to wait a little longer than anticipated.
