"Truly says - no comment.."

About: Newham General Hospital

I was seen by 4 different people and they could not provide a final diagnosis, furthermore my case required immediate surgical action due to terrible infection, that appeared on my skin, however I was sent home with insane amount of antibiotics. As I didnt feel like waiting for invitation letter to specialist that could arrive in a day, two, week or even more I approached private clinic, where my problem was recognised immediately and surgicaly removed as it needed immediate attention. Also I was asked not to take antibiotics given in the hospital. I would only like to add, that when people walk in to the hospital they expect highly qualified staff, that is able to recognise the problem and use all sources to solve the problem immediately. They expect it because they naturally trust this institution. They trust, that they will be seen by someone who represents much higher level than local GP's.
