A&E

just back from A&E feeling tired now. Sitting there in chairs waiting for things to happen. Some police filling in forms talking to a big man with a bandage on his head. Girl with a hot water bottle pressed to her head. A woman limping really badly. A black guy holding his jaw like it could be broken goes in to see the Triage nurse. Most of the seats empty. Most of the people are crowded in to another area waiting to see a Doctor. How long will that take on a Saturday night. They push a trolley with a young lad who seems hardly conscious. Pictures on the wall of the high ups in the Hospital Trust. A notice board of letters of thanks to the hospital from patients. Lots of people waiting to see somebody.
