What I liked


What could be improved

Waiting times were terrible, more staff required.

Anything else?

Average waiting time is supposed to be 2-3 hours max, I was there for almost six with a fractured arm waiting to be seen, and even then all they did was give me pain relief and book me in to be treated at a later date!
