And sitting waiting I was shocked
- 1. Most people I saw coming in were obese (well into the obese category, not just "somewhat overweight").
2. Some would arrive, check-in wait a bit, get bored and go home
3. One person was chatting to the rest of her family about how they would look at her thumb and say nothing wrong and how she could use it fine ... (and the Walk-in centre was open and only a quarter of a mile away).
4. Seemed a bit of a "Community" of regulars. People would come in and say hello/catch-up with others they knew already waiting.
It was a real shock and made me appreciate how A&E can get totally overwhelmed and I suspect, overwhelmed unnecessarily.
