About: Broomfield Hospital

I couldn't recommend this hospital less. Both my husband and daughter have complicated health and both have been treated very wrong in many occasions: My daughter has severe allergies, renal problems... she has been given wrong antibiotics which caused an allergic reaction, she has been sent home and then needed admitted again because they do not bother to look, to do a proper examination. And she got a lot worse that could have been avoided. My partner has a rare autoimmune disease, well he goes to the gp who does have not have a clue of what it is and doesn't care to look in his file...and tells him he is fine then he gets extremely worse, being at a point where he is facing serious complications yet receives no help . has no investigations or X-rays, no scans.. and has to put up with cocky attitude. the funniest thing is that he is in a&e right now and the doctor hasn't even seen him after 4h but he get a nurse to tell him he is fine and go home with some drops.... really? without even looking at his issues? I do hope Karma comes back because this is shameful Sorry I have nothing good to say ( ps: toys are dusty and dirty in kids ward)
