About: New Cross Hospital

(as a relative),

What I liked

Beatifully clean and well equipped.

What could be improved

I was forced to leave my girls aged 11 and 13 in a corridor with no where to sit and where I couldn't keep a general eye on them when bringing my mother in to admit her. I agree with the policy of keeping children away from patients but there are times when visitors and `delivery of patients' drivers are forced to bring their children with them and have no where secure or safe to leave them to wait. Why can't one of the side rooms (and most areas seem to have them) on the ward than can be turned over to a visitors waiting area?
