About: Conquest Hospital

Anything else?

I attended hospital after having a fit or seizure, as I had never had one before this was worrying. I arrived explained to the receptionist and waited almost an hor to see the triage nuse (first contact) She took my blod pressure and temperature. I was not advised if this as ok or not. I then waited over 3 hours to see the doctor. While I was wating a gentleman said his pain was geting worse and now had double vision. He was advised his card had been pcked up and would be seen in a few mines. It was an hour before he was called. According to taxi driver on the way up he suggested I'd be 5 hours or so which i laughed off. I was there from approx 20:05 to 02:25. I was happy with treatment rom all the staff, Is the hospital understaffed or just badlyorganised!
