About: Royal Free Hospital

Anything else?

If you can go somwhere other than here, I would strongly recommend you do so. I was an inpatient for approximately 4 days with suspected appendicitis. During this time: I was left without food for 44 hours I was forgotten to be collected for scans I was left without pain relief on several occasions I bled into my IV due to the nurses not disconnecting empty saline bags, Not one person cleaned my bed or surrounding areas Incorrect information was relayed to me about my condition I was sent home with antibiotics only to return 2 days later for surgery. Avoid!!
