About: Broomfield Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked


What could be improved

Organisation, information

Anything else?

Waited 2 hours to be assessed. Then another two hours to be told they weren't going to do anything. Could have told me after the first two hours. Talked to by the doctor as if I was a small child with no brain at all. Could tell there was nothing wrong just by looking, didn't even need to do an examination. What did he think I was doing there? Had four hours to spare so thought I'd spend them in A&E as it was a nice day?

Would rather go to Harlow or Colchester than to this A&E again!
