"A&E and Parking"

About: Watford General Hospital

Recently had to take my 18 year old daughter to A&E. We arrived at 11.30am and left at 11.20pm. My daughter was seen by several different doctors, but had to wait hours and hours between each consultation !!! She was in a great deal of pain, but was left to sit in the waiting room between these consultations. She was then sent home, and was told that time was a good medicine !!! And should make a return visit to her GP, ironic as it was the GP that had sent her to A&E !!! Not really what you want to hear having spent 12 hours in A&E ! It cost £20.00 in parking, totally disgusting !!! How can that be fair ? People shouldn't have to pay that sort of money on parking !!!
