I visited the A+E early on a Friday evening, while I understand the staff were probably getting ready for a very busy night and influx of patients, it was only around 7pm and the department was not busy at all. The reception desk staff and the nurse helping to admit patients were fairly friendly and helpful,I did not have to wait that long in correlation to my injury. However, the nurse that actually called me and treated me was very rude and uncompassionate. From calling my name the nurse completely ignored me, even looking me up and down when I said hello to her, turning away and not saying a word untill she sat down in the chair of treatment room. I felt the check she gave me was rushed and asked me some questions totally unrelated to my injury. When I asked a question, she treated me like an idiot, repeating herself over and over instead of explaining herself and 3 weeks later, after this nurse saying there is nothing wrong, I am having to request an x ray from my doctor and in considerable amounts of pain.
