"Waiting time 7 hours"

About: North Middlesex Hospital

Shambles waiting time 7 hours.

Why are you accepting patients? Send them to Barnet... Ohhh wait a minute Barnet is just the same...

Let's close

Chasefarm and build more flats..

Got there at 10am left at 5am...

We've gone back in time to the poor village style...

Sat in corridor whole time.. Vomiting in front of everyone. Blood taken in front of everyone in the corridor... Smelly hospital smelt of sweat and urine..

Response from North Middlesex Hospital

Thank you for your feedback.

All patients on arrival at A&E are triaged and assessed for urgency of treatment.

Long waits can occur when emergency blue light ambulances arrive with critically ill patients who require immediate attention and access to A&E cubicle beds.

This means that patients who are not requiring immediate emergency treatment will be seated in chairs.

Our A&E department have a hard working team who clean the toilets every hour and also clean the department continually.

I am the managing director for A&E services, m.fitzpatrick@nhs.net and will share your comments with the team.
