"worst hospital"

About: North Middlesex Hospital

today survived the nightmare,I am 33 weeks pregnant.presented myself to the hospital because each time I spat,I saw blood in phlegm.I had low pressure and rapid pulse.102/66 puls 105 and feeling dizzy.I said to the doctor with a couple of days I can not eat anything,because it really hurts the whole digestive tract.two years ago I had a gastroscopy.and the doctor told me that I have duodenal hernia.today in this hospital tested my blood,temperature checked,a few times measured pressure.x-rayed chest.every few minutes someone came to me and spoke to me at another.after 4 hours of waiting,I do not know what I had to wait just told me to wait,so I waited!!the next two hours,I asked the staff in August after what we really look forward.but none of the staff could not logically answer me this question.and so the doctor who told me to wait for three,more did not come!!!everyone's been looking for him!!!total haos!!!he end they gave me a prescription for heartburn drug-gaviscon!!!!!I could not believe it!!!being in pregnancy waited with people who have a high temperature,people stoned!!and that all this teeth after nearly 7 hours get gaviscon.very large lack of professionalism!I have the impression that animals are better cared for in May in this country from people!!!!!!!

Response from North Middlesex Hospital

Sorry about the delays in A&E. It can get very busy at times and patients are treated in order of clinical priority. Glad our doctors were able to help you despite your wait. I am the matron for A&E services, natasha.knutt@nhs.net and welcome any feedback from you.
