"Prescription nightmare "

About: Croydon University Hospital

It makes no sense that prescriptions when treated at this hospital must be picked up at the terrible and under staffed Lloyds on site, rather than being given to patient to use at their local pharmacy. Today I saw a heavily pregnant woman collapse in the long standing queue just to get a ticket in order to then wait. Doctors care to care for her but there were very elderly people with heart conditions waiting two hours without seating being available. It’s ridiculous. It’s a dangerous, inefficient system and needs to be changed as soon as possible. I write this still waiting for my prescription, which I had to skip work to come and collect as it takes me an hour to get to the hospital. Soviet.
