"complete shambles"

About: Croydon University Hospital

Anything else?

The sooner this hospital is shut down or comes under new and improved management the better. There is complete and utter lack of communication and coordination within Doctors and Nurses as well as between them. I have never seen anything so badly mismanaged. Nursing staff fighting in the ward in front of patients. Getting many different versions of the medical problem and the solutions from different Doctors. No consistency at all. Prematurely discharged twice within two weeks. Doctors with more focus on teaching students than caring for the patient. Consultants with no names and who you hardly meet. This place is pathetic.
