"Worst service ever"

About: Crawley Hospital / Urgent treatment centre

I went in with a fixed appointment time as my 15 month daughter was unwell. The lady at reception on 30/11/14 on the evening shift was the rudest. She didn't even show any sympathy towards our situation. She didn't even inform us when we checked in that it was a 1.5hr wait even though we had an infant appointment which required urgent attention. I would never use this service again!!! Pointless staff Urgent treatment centre more like chicken factory.

I’ll definitely share your feedback with the team, as what you describe does not reflect the standard of care we normally provide and aspire to. I ask you as well to contact our patient advice and liaison service (PALS) so we can explore what might have happened here in more detail. You can contact PALS on:
