"Queens orthopedic care- not even fit for a pauper!"

About: Queen's Hospital (Romford)

My daughter had surgery at 9am and 22 hours later we still had not been visited by a consultant. I think this absolutely disgusting behaviour as I have no idea what took place during surgery or what her aftercare will look like. The only information I managed to glean from her notes was that surgery was more complicated than anticipated, and the initial consultant was overwhelmed, and required another consultant to complete the surgery. I understand that by its very nature, hospital care can be somewhat organic as emergencies happen, however a twenty two hour emergency? I think not! This could only be considered inadequate and totally unacceptable. Poor maternity care at Queens? No the entire hospital is a shambles.
