Dave has come into the A&E with swelling in his hand, which he thinks he might have broken. He injured it during a drunken Sunday night but didn't go to hospital yesterday because he "didn't want to be a big girl about it."
He says he didn't go to a GP or call 111 because it "wasn't an emergency."
A&E departments across the country are having what some people call "a challenging" time and others say is a full-blown crisis.
Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham is a major trauma centre treating the most severely injured casualties from across the Midlands.
