"A& E"

About: King George Hospital

I had to take my 85 year old mother to A & E on New Years Eve. She was treated with respect and kindness by every member of staff we came into contact with. Even when I had to leave she told how kind everyone had been. Whilst we were waiting the police bought in a very drunk lady and just left her there for the staff to deal with, this they did with great patience, she did not need to be there as she was not unwell or injured just intoxicated. I feel it is very unfair on these hard working and overworked staff to have deal worth these kind of situations.
