"Lifts in Lanesborough wing"

About: St George's Hospital (Tooting) (London)

There are three lifts in the Lanesborough wing. These seem to be used by medical staff, support staff and patients/visitors. They are small, slow, antiquated and frequently seem out of order. To the point where I almost had my baby on the ground floor waiting for one to arrive that was not full. How staff cope working there day to day must indeed be trying. I appreciate that it is not an easy solution, but I am surprised that it is legal to keep operating at such a dysfunctional level.
