"Very long wait in same day admissions, ..."

About: Princess Alexandra Hospital (Harlow)

(as the patient),

What I liked

Very long wait in same day admissions, but the outcome was good. I have been admitted to PAH several times for spine treatment over past 9 years. Clearly the hospital has gone through a dramatic reshaping - gone are the miserable ward nurses, gone are the filthy floors - the staff and environment is first class now.
