"Awful with ridiculous waiting times"

About: Newark Hospital

What I liked

The Consultant

What could be improved

Reduced waiting

Nurse friendliness

Anything else?

At out patients - Long waiting times, as I write this I have been waiting over an hour past my

Appointment time, no info on if I will be in soon, I have not even been acknowledged

By staff yet, I have been here a few times before all of which have resulted in massive waiting

Times, the system is a joke and a waste of the publics valuable time
