"Do not go to north middlesex hospital"

About: North Middlesex Hospital

For those reading this, do yourself a favour and avoid at all costs this hospital. Rude nurses , doctors looking on google to give yourself an explanation , unfriendly stuff , people crying of pain for hours only to be given the incredible pill that is paracetamol (and this after hours of screaming ), pregnant woman bleeding with miscarrige waiting for 6 hours at A&E only to be seen by a doctor (not specialist) for exactly 2 minutes , this how long it took the doctor to examine her (this is my wife) . Patients screaming of pain while doctors have breakfast (all together aand at the same time) , i am very sorry for not filming what i could see in a 2015 london major hospital . There could be good and well trained doctors (not saying that all are the same) but trust me do not go there. My experience at middlesex hospital can be described in a few words : NHS employees (paid by us , taxpayers) are all thinking at how quickly can they go back home . Their motto : Too much paperwork' . I'll finish this by saying -give me a break- at this : "Puting people first" PS: Sorry for my english and spelling , it's my second language , and i have to admit i'n not a doctor at Mddlesex hospital .. thank you for reading

Response from North Middlesex Hospital

Sorry to hear that you experienced a long wait for your wife. The attendance rate at A&E can be unpredictable with high volumes of people attending. People in A&E can be quite disturbed watching a patient screaming in pain but pain threshold varies amongst patients and after triage and examination by doctors the correct treatment and pain relief is always given. I am the A&E service manager, gcarter-sandy@nhs.net and would like you to contact me directly with more details so that a full investigation can be launched.
