"Best a&e I've ever visited"

About: The Royal London Hospital

Anything else?

I visited the Royal London in Whitechapel yesterday evening. After seeing some recent reviews I was a little wary, however The Royal London has to be the best a&e I have ever visited. I have visited accident and emergency departments at hospitals in both Essex & North London previously and none have ever been this good. I arrived at 7.10pm and was discharged at 10.20pm. In that time I had an ECG, blood tests, a CT scan and was checked over by a triage nurse, 2 more nurses & a doctor - all who were friendly, funny & extremely helpful. There were no excessive waiting times; I thought I may have to wait 2 hours to see the triage nurse, let alone be in and out within 4! I would, without doubt recommend this hospital to friends and family - my partner was so impressed he said he would travel an extra half an hour to use this a&e instead of his local general hospital in future. Once again, the staff were fantastic and I felt like I was in very good hands. All in all, the best nhs experience I have had. Hats off to them!
