About: Northwick Park Hospital

What I liked

On 10th december this year I had a fall from height at my partners house the paramedics arrived and boarded collared and gave me pain relief. They took me back to northwick park a and e in severe pain I waited to be checked over a team came in. One of the sisters was shockingly rude and ignorant to the amount of pain I was in as was the dr. I kept saying my shoulder hurts they said nothing wrong what a waste of a thousand pound on an ambulance I promptly burst in to tears at my treatment. My partner took me home to rest even though I was in pain bad in my head and shoulder two days later it was unbearable so he took me to edgware walk in centre where I had an exam which concluded I had injured my shoulder I have snapped tendons and ligaments and am in a collar and cuff. In this day and age its shocking my injuries and pain were dismissed so freely. I am considering legal action against northwick even though its being investigated formally. All I can say is shame on u northwick park

What could be improved


Anything else?

I will never forgive northwick for the state they have left me in
