"Shocking "

About: The Royal London Hospital

Let me start by saying the staff are great. However right outside of the hospital is a complete joke. The crowds that gather drinking alcohol having party’s with speakers right outside the hospital is shocking and disgusting especially as hospitals are vulnerable places. These people are loud rowdy and aggressive who make many comments to the normal people walking past too get access into the hospital as well as leaving. Security seems to be doing nothing apart from watching police presence is not huge. These people make it unsafe for people going through things at the hospital. The hospital needs to do more to remove this anti social behaviour right outside as my mother was too scared too be outside due to these people and leaving the hospital myself one of the drunks threw a drink at me and dared me to say something as there was at least 40 of them having a blast. It is truly shocking this is allowed. logo
