About: Ilkeston Community Hospital

Me and my partner waited for nearly 2 hours for a mri scan no communication between the external mri scanning machine and main hospital, I had to bang on the door of the truck to get an answer the staff member that was there to do the scan was rude and unconvincingly sympathetic we had to wait in the main reception of the hospital which is cold and not a practical waiting area especially when waiting for so long. All in all I would say that Ilkeston hospital was a joke 16 years ago and has only gotten worse.
