Response from North Middlesex Hospital

Thank you for your feedback. So sorry that the service provided was not your expectation.

Unfortunately the attendance in A&E can rapidly increase and patients being brought in by ambulances on stretchers do require a little more space for manoeuvring within the A&E unit.

The ambulance staff should have taken a little more care and not knocked your painful knees.

I am the managing director for A&E service m.fitzpatrick@nhs.net and will be discussing your comments with the team.
