"A and E West Mid Hospital - Head Injury"

About: West Middlesex University Hospital

Anything else?

I had to attend this Department due to an unfortunate accident sustained at Twickenham Rail Station due to a faulty passenger chair. I had a profusely bleeding head wound. The Reception Staff shrugged as I waited for over an hour with a gaping cut and bleeding. No stars for them. They could see I was shocked and distressed and they knew of my medical history of Hypertension and Osteoporosis. Once attended I was professionally treated by a team of wonderful and caring Doctors, Nurses, Radiographers who went beyond the call of duty to see I was medically ok before discharging me. I would like to thank them very much.
