We had an incident that required taking Herself to QEH Emerg the other night. She is fine, thanks.

Of the 3 categories she was deemed urgent by the triage nurse. She sat in waiting area for 4 hours, then another hour behind big secure doors before she saw a doc.

We arrived at 9 pm and home at 3 am.

Urgent you say.

It was hard not to observe that in the crowded waiting area there were few who appeared to require emergency attention.
