"Early morning admission to A and E"
About: King George Hospital King George Hospital Ilford IG3 8YB
I was close to collapse on arrival and was treated excellently by all staff, from the receptionist who rushed me through to a cubicle, to attending medical staff in A and E. I cannot fault my treatment through to the assessment unit and admission to a ward. I did feel sorry for the radiographer working in a very cold, dismal x ray room. Apart from a short wait in a cold corridor waiting for x ray to open, all processes went smoothly. Treatment on the ward was variable but conditions were clean and food reasonable. Staff on the ward would benefit from adhering to the patient charter and involving patients in their care. At this stage, apart from being grateful I was feeling better, I felt I had no meaningful communication with nurses and the ward consultant was very rude to me.
