"So so service....."

About: King's College Hospital (Denmark Hill)

Great care and kindness from triage nurse and GP that we saw. Nurses on ward were uncaring, unsympathetic and did not want to listen. Gave confusing advice on taking of medication - nurse said one thing, printed instructions said another. Were kept waiting for blood results for nearly 4 hours when told it would be 1 hour. All in all not a particularly positive experience. However I would like to say the receptionist in A&E, the triage nurse and the GP in minor A&E were lovely and thank you for your kindness and consideration.
