"5 hours wait"

About: North Middlesex Hospital

I just been waiting nearly 5 hours with my 3 year old son to be seen by a doctor, I had to leave without my son been seen. This is just ridiculous, something like this happen in an emergency service for children's.

Response from North Middlesex Hospital

Thank you for your feedback.

Every patient who attends A&E is triaged and assessment made on urgency.

I am sorry you had a long wait to be seen, our department has been very busy and delays can occur in when emergency blue light ambulances arrive carrying critically ill patients for immediate treatment. I am the A&E service manager gcarter-sandy@NHS.net and will be sharing your comments with the team.
