"pathetic A&E"

About: Watford General Hospital

i have had an anal fissure for a week ...i cant go to the toilet really painful....i called A&E i was told it was 4 hours wait and to go to gp and that it was only for accidents....it takes 3 weeks to get appointment to GP watford and months to get a specialist to see you

NURSE COULDNT WAIT to hang the phone down....i asked when it was a good time to come i was told never....because they didnt know what was going to happen..........they dont want you there on AE full stop

NHS staff only care about more money and less work....i called at 22 30pm anal fissures could became worse and take many weeks to repair themselves......the NHS doesnt care....and it costs MANY BILLIONS to run
