"Distressing!"

About: Conquest Hospital

What I liked

The kind and sympathetic nurses in A and E.

What could be improved

The waiting time and organisation of the team!

Anything else?

Arrived at 7.15pm, was assesed at 8pm (not too bad), Seen by doctor at around 11pm, bloods taking by 11:30pm, X-ray at 12am , Second bloods taken at 1amish, My fiance was finally admitted to the medical assesment ward at around 3.30am. So all in all it took around 8 hours to finally send him to the medical assesment ward. Its now 10am, and he is still in the medical assesment ward.

In this time i heard numerous unproffesional conversation between doctors, such as who was wearing what perfume! Maybe if they spent less time talkign about Scents, and more time talking about patients, i wouldnt of spent all that time stuck in A and E!
