(as the patient),

I attended A&E following a bicycle accident in which I was knocked unconscious and landed heavily on my right arm, fracturing the radial head.

I waited 4+ hours to be seen - it was a busy Sunday period where a lot of sports injuries appeared to be occurring.

I was given a sling and ice pack for my arm (I requested it) but was disappointed with the lack of concern for the head injury, given that I was knocked unconscious, experienced amnesia and my bike helmet was cracked from the impact.
