"blood test"

About: Purley War Memorial Hospital

When I arrived there were a long queue due to an earlier shortage of staff. When it was my turn I was treated by a very friendly and very professionnal nurse. Many thanks to her. On another note, why on the main website of Mayday hospital on the Purley war memorial hospital we can't find the direct telephone number for this hospital ? Also why the opening hours for the different departments are not shown ? I have to call the main switch board at Mayday and was given wrong information. The phlebology department opens at 7am and not 8am... Otherwise it is a very pleasant place.

Response from Purley War Memorial Hospital

Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback. I am sorry that you encountered a wait, but will ensure your kind comments are passed on to the nurses there. I have checked our main web site, and this does now show the correct opening times of the phlebotomy service - I will also arrange for a direct telephone number to be added to avoid the need to make enquiries via the main switchboard at Croydon University Hospital.
