"Came for apenditis surgery"

About: North Middlesex Hospital

Anything else?

This is the worst place ever to be I came on Friday at 8 am with apenditis pain They left me in a room waiting 5 hrs just to get a pain killer then they never updated me about the surgery and they kept telling me the doctor was no in At 10 am following day they operated on me,my apenditis was almost burst and I suffered like hell Now get allowed I did not eat since 3 days and the only thing they wanted was for me to leave as they need the bed There is no dignity as I was almost naked but ppl stil coming All the night I called th nurses for help but keep ignoring and they do not let u sleep as they talk about over time When. I asked the door to be shut they told me they leave it open and me naked inside This is the first and last time I come here I had to call withington to do transfere It was only one doctor and a nurse the rest very bad

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
