"The NHS is disgusting and not caring at all. ..."

About: Queen's Hospital (Romford)

What I liked


Anything else?

My Great Grandson has been in and out of this Hospital since he was three months old. He is now 18months. He was admitted on Monday 17th September 2012 being sick and could not eat or drink without it coming straight back. He had a tube put up his nose for a few hours, but pulled it out. Apparently the did some tests without ever telling his mother the results. He was discharged on Thursday 20th Sept. but within an hour and a half was readmitted and his mother was told he was really unwell and they could hear a heart murmur. They sent him home on Friday 21st asking for him to be taken back on Monday 24th as a Doctor from GOSH was coming to see him. My grandaughter took him only to be told the doctor had been called away. This child has not eaten for nearly two weeks and hardly drinks at all. Over the weekend all he did was lay in his bed sleep and poo, and has now been told to wait for an appointment from GOSH which could take 2-4 weeks. This is absolutely disgusting. This is a 18month old little boy fading away.
