About: Queen Alexandra Hospital

I was introduced by my GP in emergency. The doctors are very very friendly and professional. Thank you very much.

The only problem was the receptionist in that ward. I came to the ward for first time with the letter GP gave to me. The receptionist didn't even say a word to me and took my letter directly from my hand.

I don't need you smile to me but at least say a word ("Hi" or "Hello") to a patient when they come to your desk for the very first time! It is very rude and unprofessional.

This was happened 2 days after. I was called to come back for other treatments still in this ward.
