"Children's a&e"

About: King's College Hospital (Denmark Hill)

I can understand waiting over 4 hours for a broken toe but not for a 3 month old baby with breathing issues and a recommendation from their GP. Had to leave in the end to seek help elsewhere.

Never even got to see the registrar.

Disgraceful is the only appropriate description.
