About: North Middlesex Hospital

Yesturday I attended north mid 15/05/14. There wasnt enough seating, children running around the small peads waiting area. The floor had a spillage that had not been cleaned and the toys provided were black and not properly kept. In all the times Ive attended nm never have I seen such dirty conditions. I felt as though I had to stop my children from touch everything with the fear of infection. For a hospital it was absolutely disgusting and i will never return to nm unless I have no other choice. There was also a child who attempted to strangle another child and the staff did nothing. Completely disgusted!

Response from North Middlesex Hospital

Thanks for your comments. Paediatric A&E can get busy at peak times and young children are prone to be a bit messy and sometimes get into scraps! It's really helpful for our busy staff if parents who notice problems such as spills can report them so we can get it cleared up quickly. I'm manager of A&E - please send me an email if you'd like to discuss it any further - mark.channell@nhs.net. Many thanks.
