Response from King's College Hospital (Denmark Hill)

I am sorry that you left the Emergency Department without being assessed because there was a long wait. You should have been triaged on arrival to assess the urgency with which you required medical review. Had the triage nurse felt that you required urgent review you would usually be called forward quickly so I can only assume that the opinion was that you could wait to be seen, despite the frustration that this casued you.
