"Positive visit to A and E"

About: Stepping Hill Hospital / Accident and emergency

(as a parent/guardian),

Went with daughter on new years day, expecting a long wait.

Signed in quickly at reception and triaged within 10 mins. Then seen by nurse practitioner and sent through to xray as suspected possible broken toe which would not normally be x-rayed but was x-rayed to rule out broken bone at side of foot. Minimal wait in radiology dept.

Short wait before being called back to see the same nurse practitioner. Small toe only broken, hence neighbour strapping and advice given.

All in all a very positive experience from friendly knowledgeable staff, with less than 2 and a half hours in A and E.
