About: The Whittington Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

Some of the staff were nice and I got a quick referal time after seeing the doctor.

What could be improved

Empathy

Most of the nurses I dealt with showed very little empathy with my concerns and fears and treated me very much like a number as opposed to a patient.

Anything else?

I used to work for this hospital and so it was my 1st choice for treatment.

After my experiences, I decided that I would rather pay and go to a private clinic as opposed to go back again.
