"Avoid!!"

Everyone should avoid here! Been here twice in the last week with my daughter who was very unwell, both times had to wait around 3/4 hours, both times giving ther wrong diagnosis.. Even though was seen by two different doctors and told that she just had a viral and would pass.. Only had to take her after a week to the QE to be told she had a bad infection and that the doctors should of noticed this straight away with her symptoms and now has to be on a longer corse of antibiotics because it was missed by the doctors at blaydon. Also my grandad would had just had major surgey went here to be told he has a seroius condition and would need to make his way up to hospital in the morning as they dont do blood tests here. If he had this condition he should not of been left overnight, luckly when he went to hospital the next day a simple blood test showed he did not have this. I suggest everyone avoids this place by a mile! Disgusting.
