Response from North Middlesex Hospital

Thank you for your feedback. Sorry to hear that you had to wait.

Sometimes due to the urgency of a patient, an ambulance will arrive and take a child into theatre/or resuscitation area.

These cases can sometimes cause patients waiting in paediatric A&E to have a longer waiting time.

I am the paediatric A&E service manager, Samantha.davison@nhs.net and would welcome more feedback from you to enable me to investigate why you had to wait so long.
