I get recognised in Hull Royal
1st trip was two weeks into my current job when I had a severe allergic reaction. 5 minute wait and 2 hours being monitored with a syringe of adrenaline in the room, just in case. Occasionally a trainee nurse popped in, looked me over and would blather wow that is interesting. Then I had to get cock out for the doc to see how far the reaction had spread.

2nd trip, house mate had a stress fracture to her ankle, the really stupid bone that makes up the heel. 3 hours total including waiting and treatment, but since it was a monday and was full of fodder from the weekend, that can be passed off as poor timing.

3rd trip, whiplash. Git of a nurse prodded and poked in all the sore spots out of spite. Got a neck brace and appologies 1.5 hours later. Was partially stripped and had the log roll to check for damage and since I'm a big fella it took about 6 staff to hold me in place. Quick xray, lots of powerful free meds, free cuppa and free sandwich (fucking bonus!) 5 hours total including recovery and a free extension to my parking, and was bumped for a serious bike accident.

4th trip, as a first aider to accompany someone who had an unknown chemical in their eye. Turned out to be cheese and onion crisps. 1.5 hours, mostly waiting for the cab.

5th trip, the now ex misses was ropey for a bit and had a late night episode meaning she needed a scan or someshite. Minichedders and a wordsearch is all I can remember. And some guy with an epic headwound. Staff all were nice.

In summary, good triage, some retarded or bitter staff but mostly polite and professional, free food. Better than Bradford Royal.
