"Eye department"

About: New Cross Hospital

We attended the eye department for a fluorine scan on Monday 16th may. During this procedure my husband collapsed. When help arrived they were indecisive on action and apart from one nurse who helped me the rest were totally useless. The crash team were calledd and took 6 min to get there . When they arrived the sister told me that they liked my perfume , how nice . They also said that it took time because the crash team didn't know exactly were the eye department was. In my experience and I do have some, crash teams arrive with a bag . It should contain several items including oxygen . I saw nothing . I took care of my husband . If it had been more serious eg heart attack your team would not have given him a chance . Disgraceful from your whole set up.
