"No go hospital"

About: Newham General Hospital

Anything else?

I had spent just under a month at Newham General as its the closest hospital to me. I have now learnt no matter how bad the situation is to go to another. I had to wait around 3-4 hours to be seen by a Dr who were quite dismissive In the first instance. Than when I did see a member of the A+E he was actually quite good and did answer all my questions honestly. My time on the wards... terrible. staff never attended to me at an appropriate given time after calling for them. could take up to an hour-being in soiled clothes or wet blankets! And when they did come they would shut the bell and say someone will come back later. In the end was transferred to another hospital had caught MRSA too!!!
