Some people go to A&E and staff wonder why they’ve come because it’s obvious to them that it’s not an emergency and the person doesn’t need to be there. Staff wonder why people didn’t just go to their GP instead. Meanwhile, patients worry about wasting the time of health services. They wonder how serious their problem is and whether they should bother any doctor with it. The problem does not go away and they get more and more worried so they go to A&E to get it sorted out as quickly as possible.
