Stadium Road, Woolwich, London, England, SE18 4QH
All of the staff at QEH are brilliant - over the past seven years I've had many occasions to be grateful to them for their kindness and care as an In-Patient,and Out-Patient. I will NEVER forget any of them............................
The hospital is well equipped with good staff .The doctors, nurses etc are knowledgeable, clear and easy to understand, they allow the patient to be involved in treatment decisions and in order to experience a reduction in symptoms/problems. Contrary to my expectations i was seen on time by the doctors. I only was not happy at not receiving early advice/information about the cost of my treatment. But generally the hospital is an excellent place to receive medical care, when you are there be rest assured that your life is in safe hands.
This hospital is absolutely awful. The staff are rude and incompetent. I was treated with utter contempt. The place is very dirty.
The staff were appallingly rude and insensitive. My wife waited ten hours for treatment despite bleeding profusely. She checked in at 7am and was in great discomfort but didn't receive any pain medication until 2pm. The toilets were leaking and smelly and scattered with blood-soaked gowns and panty liners. There was urine all over the floor. The room in which my wife waited was windowless and very hot. The walls and floor were absolutely filthy. The obstetrician - Anjita Sinha - had the temerity to suggest that we go home and come back the following day if we were tired of waiting. Seriously - would they send home a woman with blood pouring out of her? Someone in great discomfort? Eventually someone brought morphine but only after I complained and kept hassling the staff. The staff in the Day Care Unit were mostly just sitting around in the reception area doing nothing. My wife was listed as an emergency case but all of the elective cases were seen ahead of her. It's now four days since her procedure and her health has deteriorated to an alarming degree. I'm going to have to find a private emergency unit.
Just a bit more information about when to expect treatment. ie. 'in the next couple of hours', 'this afternoon' etc. Totally understand the difficulty in being exact.
