"Disgraceful staff in the admissions team."

About: St George's Hospital (Tooting) (London)

I have never been more outraged by a health service in all my time. In admissions, nobody ever answers the phone. I have left more than 20 voicemails with the pair of admissions staff and none of them have been returned. They have lost my paperwork and forgotten to send referrals that have been promised. When I finally got someone on the phone they said they would look into my query and get back to me in 5 minutes and the never did. I am still none the wiser as to if my operation is even going ahead!
