"Long waiting time in Early pregnancy unit"

About: Queen's Hospital (Romford)

I registered to be seen at 10:30pm. However I was seen at around 3:00am in the morning with almost 4 and half hours wait. I don't understand why the hospital is so understaffed and why it takes almost five hours to be seen. There were almost 6 patients before me. That doesn't explain amount of time it took for them to see me. Apart from that the medical exam was good and convincing. I would have liked to be seen more quickly.

Response from Queen's Hospital

We try to make sure our patients are seen in order of clinical need and as quickly as possible, and I am sorry on this occasion you were waiting longer to be seen by our staff than you were expecting. I am pleased that you were satisfied with the medical examination. Our PALS team is available on 01708 435 454, or by email PALS@bhrhospitals.nhs.uk if you would like to speak further about this. Yours sincerely Wendy Matthews Interim Chief Nurse
