About: West Middlesex University Hospital

Anything else?

It heartens me that A&E seem to have their act together, because my experiences with this hospital have been appalling. They specialise in wasting time, losing paperwork and smug self satisfied doctors. There is no continuity of care in terms of outpatients, notably at the Gastroenterology Clinic, which is shambolic. My experiences two years earlier at the renal clinic were no better when all my notes went missing and some locum suggested I invented a kidney stone! Communications between the hospital and local GPs is non existent. Heaven forbid you need a CT scan. In the Brentford area their reputation is notorious. Riddled with inefficiency.
