"Fantastic nurse run service"

About: Queen's Hospital (Romford)

Receptionist accommodating, some other patients rather rude to them, a difficult job. I was seen by a very helpful nurse, who put my mind at ease, gave me the relevant tests and prescribed treatment that has been successful.

I did observe that there appeared to be a shortage of nurses who were working hard to keep the waiting time down that unfortunately was quite long. The walk-in clinic had a long queue before it opened, so that resulted in a long wait.

Overall an excellent service by hard pressed nurses.
