"Extremely unorganised"

About: Chase Farm Hospital

Anything else?

I have a slipped disc in my lower back, I have been to chase farm around 5 times in the past 2 months through A&E due to not being able to walk or feel my legs! Every time I come into this hospital they simple chuck me a few painkillers and tell me to go (which I can't because I can't walk duhhh!) I have had 3 Xrays and an MRI scan (which they didn't to send the whole report to my doctor) and they still have failed to mention anything. Good thing I have a brilliant private physiotherapist. I also broke my finger in a while back which they also failed to manipulate correctly. I would not recommend this hospital to anyone! Every time I just have a horrible experience.
