"A&E department is abysmal"

About: Charing Cross Hospital

I unfortunately had to visit the A&E department and I was absolutely appalled by how I was treated by reception staff, triage nurse and the doctor. All three members of staff were dismissive, rude and ultimately failed at their job. I was misdiagnosed and left feeling belittled and dismissed by staff after waiting for 3 hours to be seen.

Do not visit this hospital.
