About: Barnet Hospital

I've been to Barnet's A&E a few times and I'm disappointed to say that the service was way below par(and this is coming from someone who's had many encounters with Mayday hospital). Firstly, the waiting period was an absolute joke I'm talking over 4 hours of waiting in agony and exhaustion. Not a single person came over to let anyone know what was actually going on or how soon they would be attended to) Secondly, once I was finally seen to I received the highest level of facetious attitude my tax money could buy. They were rude, almost forceful with their "medical assistance" and just cold. And lastly because of these reoccurring encounters with the A&E in Barnet I have decided to go private where my health is concerned and I couldn't be happier.
