Poor. Twice now had to use the Urgent Treatment centre for our baby and each time they are quick to triage you but then no one in the waiting room after triage gets to be seen in the consultation room for hours. There just seems no nurse or …

This is such a large hospital I assume that some wards are better than others. Some staff will be better than others.
Even with written protocols, the hospital messes up blood tests. …

Newer A&E waiting room design is more comfortable and comforting, can say I’d be pleased if this design was stretched across into other areas (especially waiting rooms) of GWH. Waiting hours are still long went twice in one month and waited …

Save your time, nerves and more importantly life and do not come to the emergency unit of this hospital! The doctors are neglecting their job and letting infants who can’t breath on their own wait for over 5 hrs to be seen!!! …

Parking is still an issue. Especially if you need to go to a&e or urgent care. Then if you’re disabled forget it. A disabled person will need to park at the front entrance and then make their own way round. No easy feat with disabilities. Poor show. Staff do their best despite being under funded under paid and over worked.

Excellent care of my 102 year old mother who has been in and out of GWH for 3 months. The staff and doctors could not have taken more care and in a very cheerful manner. My mother was more than happy with the attention she received. The NHS gets constant criticism in the media which we feel is totally unjustified.
