"Waiting times - A & E"

About: St Mary's Hospital (London)

Anything else?

Quite dissappointed with the waiting times at A & E. For a hospital that treats a lot of patients. This has by far been the longest. I saw people critical / non critical get served before me. There is no transparency on waiting times and the appointment staff seems to run off every now and then. And seem to have little or no concern for patients. It's been more than 2 hrs since I have been here. Is this the average waiting time?
