"Childrens A & E"

About: University Hospital Lewisham

My 15 yr old son attended A & E today with a problem of a sensitive nature. We waited under 10 minutes to see the nurse who was very understanding and professional. The department was very busy thus it was almost 2 hrs till we saw the doctor but this was not a problem for us. The doctor was skilled and respectful. Following the visit the GPs surgery requested clarification of the recommendations and the staff in A & E responded to my request with the doctor who had seen my son calling me back without delay. This was an example of an excellent NHS team. Thank you!
