First review of a possible few but this needs to be said now.

Experienced a recent visit to A and E @Scunthorpe. Advised to attend after phoning 111 number. The wait was short for treatment. Care from nurse and the Doctor first class. The unit is deserving of the forthcoming new Emergency department.

Had an appointment in out patients. The parking area for that side of the hospital is now smaller, as the ambulances park near outpatients. If looking for a Neurology nurse appointment, they are above the Neurology dept the in a Ugology dept on floor D, right at the end of the waiting room corridor. Good luck

Parking is horrendous and when trying to get an operator as the silly phone system couldn’t understand my speech it sent me on a wild goose chase. At least the staff are nice and pleasant but I did end up being late for an appointment even though I arrived half hour before.

This is a very bad hospital. You will be queuing outside to go to A & E and even when you are seated, you will be waiting hours to be seen.

Attended yesterday for lung function test. Was seen by Tracey, she explained everything that was going to happen before we did tests. Then explained each stage in detail before it was done. Didn’t feel rushed, was put at ease by Tracey. Very good 1st experience of attending Scunthorpe hospital.
