About: Croydon University Hospital Croydon University Hospital Thornton Heath CR7 7YE
What could be improved
This hospital is pretty arcane. Really poorly maintained. It should be bulldozed and rebuilt from scratch. The equipment is pretty poor and seems to be in short supply. Had to go to get my plastercast removed and the A&E did not have the right kit for removing fibreglass casts so tried to hack it off with a pair of scissors and an old fashioned pair of plaster cutters. Needless to say it didn't work. Other than that the general state of the hospital is poor. Staff are on the whole unfriendly and even unprofessional. Security guards treated patients with contempt. Other than in a life threatening situation I would not want to attend this hospital again!
