"Homerton going down hill quickly"

About: Homerton University Hospital

In a nutshell,I found the staff in the Paediatric A&e to be very condescending, unprofessional and rude. The wait time was boarding on ridiculous 10.5 for a blood test. There was hardly any concept of quality of service in the Starlight ward. I could not believe this is the same hospital I gave birth in 2 years old. The only professionalism I saw was in the radiography department which provided a welcome break from the hostility of A&E staff. I will be making a formal complaint.
