About: Hillingdon Hospital / Accident and emergency

(as the patient),

As an accident prone person, I spend a night in the HHs waiting room about once a year; usually with a broken limb of some form.

From my experience, the waiting time is horrendous, especially if you get yourself to the hospital alone (drove there with what I later found to be 2 fractured bones in my foot).

I don't think I've ever managed to get seen before waiting for at least 6 hours... my record has been around 12; with two fractured bones in my hand (motorcycle accident).

The fracture clinic has its highs and lows... but I rarely go there as by then I've managed to sort out private treatment with another hospital
