"A & E"

About: Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother Hospital

Having moved to Margate recently and not yet registered with GP had the bad luck of having to visit A & E for a minor complaint that needed treatment. After registering reason for visit and waiting to be seen by Triage nurse told couldn't do anything should go to another hospital in Ashford as they were dealing with a lot of sick people.

Didn't ask about my medical condition! I am disabled and have cancer.

Well returned to a London Health Trust and guess what operation tomorrow!

Bet St George's would treat people from Kent
