Response from King George Hospital

Thank you for taking the time to make us aware of your experience, I was very sorry to read of the long wait your client encountered in our A&E department. Unfortunately, we are not able to determine how many patients are going to access our Emergency Department on any one day and patients that do access the service are triaged based on their clinical need, which can sometimes result in a patient’s waiting longer than originally anticipated. If however, you would like your concerns investigated, please contact me through our PALS team on 01708 435 454, or by email PALS@bhrhospitals.nhs.uk.

Your Sincerely

Dr Nadeem Moghal

Medical Director
