About: Homerton University Hospital Homerton University Hospital London E9 6SR
I went to the Homerton Hospital walk-in clinic last night as I had an ear infection - something that I have often. The nurse did not listen to me when I said I was there because I have an ear infection. She made me give a urine sample and did not respond when I questioned if this was necessary for as I only had an ear ache. After waiting an hour to see the nurse again, she asked irrelevant questions and seemed surprised when I once again said I was here because I had an ear ache. She was unprepared to examine for an ear infection. I left the hospital, after waiting almost 2 hours to be seen, completely unsatisfied and with only the suggestion to take paracetamol for the pain. This is the last time I will use a walk-in service and I have made an appointment with my GP at home.
