"Way understaffed"

About: Chelsea & Westminster Hospital

In the paediatric emergency, the situation was awful when we went. There were too many nurses and too few doctors. So, you get admitted and then wait ages to see a doctor. It is mildly shocking that the average wait time is 4 hours.

At one point, they said they sent out fort more doctors but that didn't seem to have happened. Such is the short state of afford here.
