"Do not go here"

About: University Hospital Lewisham

I visited hospital with a broken toe, spent 4h waiting to be checked and left home with nothing. The first doctor who had a look, said oh yes, we need to have a look here. Go sit down and someone will come to you. But they only brought my history card to the right doctor after an hour. I waited 2 more hours, which is in total 4h and went home really unhappy. There was a young man sitting with a finger cut off and be waited for the same time! This is ridiculous!/and it is not like there were a lot of people or anything. Well done Lewisham, will not come back
