About: Queen Elizabeth Hospital (Gateshead) Queen Elizabeth Hospital (Gateshead) Gateshead NE9 6SX
a sign on the wall in A&E says when they are busy you will have a short wait. I had to leave after two and a half hours with a approx. twenty people still in front of me. There is a wall of glass in the waiting area and when the sun is out it is like sitting in an oven. I felt sick and dizzy. The old A&E was much better than this. Hope I don't have to go back. I will try the walk in centre at Blaydon tomorrow. I think blinds should be fitted to the large windows, very bad design fault. Lots of staff walking about with a sheet of paper trying to look busy.
