"Walk-in centre with no patient care"

Extremely dissatisfied to first spend an hour waiting, just to be told that the minimum waiting time is another 3.5 hours, ie gone midnight. All that after trying two other walk-in centres in London who didn't have enough staff/didn't deal with asthma and chest infections. Very disappointed that such a simple thing breathing difficulty cannot be solved by any nurse or anyone with medical knowledge. Happy breathing, I'll wait another day with that, and maybe tomorrow a private hospital will provide a better service
