"A&E First and Last time there for me"

About: St Thomas' Hospital (London)

Anything else?

I was in pain, I was seriously drowsy wiht a temperature, I could not work I could not do anything so I forced myself to go to the Hospital. 1st queue for the deatils, 2nd queue for the nurse, 3rd queue for another nurse. Even though I said that for my gp there was 2 weeks' waiting list and that I had been suffering for 10 days, no blood test was taken, no medicine prescribed. For the 3rd queue there was not even a receptionist so nobody told me I was supposed to post my file in a box. I waited there for around 3 hours. I went home and I was still sick and I only wasted my time there. I will never go there again, nobody cares over there, unlie other Hospitals in London.
