Response from Newham General Hospital

We are sorry to hear that you left our A&E service unseen. Unfortunately our Emergency Department can become very busy but patients are triaged according to their medical needs at the time.

Other NHS Services are available to use should you need medical advice. You can find more information on our website about other services that are available here www.bartshealth.nhs.uk/your-visit/getting-the-right-care

Kind regards

Barts Health NHS Trust
