"Extremely poor hospital"

About: Queen's Hospital (Romford)

Was brought in via Ambulance and waited 45mins (in urgent care centre) told to wait in a different ward (Majors lite). When when I stated the exact time since, we arrived as per the paramedic (45min).Acording to receptionist. Around 30, I stated thats incorrect. Nhs employees response, well that's what the doctors wil use soo... been waiting in a cold corridor for 2 hours exact with no update from staff and when I asked, how many doctors on duty at this ward now.. reply: I don't know me:an estimate as to how long reply: I don't know awfully poor service, for a patient with breathing difficulty and lips going blue...This just isn't acceptable.I pay for NHS with my taxes and this is not money's worth! Avoid at all cost - you will not get the help and care you came for!! After all this wait, left with no medicine, no diagnosis, no help no care....nothing zilch
