"Worst care"

About: North Middlesex Hospital

Anything else?

No matter the emergency, you have to wait in line with everybody else, one could be dying and the nurses would be chatting with their friends. I had to call the doctor for him to come, otherwise he wouldn't come. Rude nurses, they simply ignore you. I had to wait 3 hours before being given a painkiller, they only gave me pain killers because I insisted. I was told I had nothing and told to go home even though I was in terrible pain. I haven't seen the results of blood test or x-ray even though I asked for them. Overall I would have to say that nobody should go there, unless it is the last hospital on earth. It will certainly worsen your situation, both physically and mentally.

Response from North Middlesex Hospital

I am sorry to hear about your mixed experiences in the department. I am the service manager of the A&E department and keen to improve things. Would you be kind enough to send an email to me: mark.channell@nhs.net leaving your phone number so I can call you back and have a chat about what we need to do better? Thanks a lot
