I fell off the metal stairs by my flat when it was wet after the rain. Went to Whipps, was struggling to sit down and stand up; the queues and the waiting time was bad. I came in at 11am and left at 8pm. …

Always had good experiences in children’s A&E. Doctors and nurses have been so helpful. It’s a shame so many people are negative about a service that is free. If there are long waiting times it’s because the staff are overstretched and there are far too many people going there for non-urgent reasons.

Going through a horrible time with bowel surgery, I´m glad that I ended up here. One of my worst experiences but taken care of by amazing people. Every fright, every pain or problem was taken care with compassion and understanding. Thank you very much, it helped to a speedy recovery and overall safe feeling.

Thankyou to all the medical teams who were exceptionally hard working caring and kind. My short stay in Poplar Ward was comfortable and any needs and concerns were addressed with professionalism and kindness despite the pressures and long hours they had to endure. I much appreciate what you all did and do for us.

I cannot speak for other people, but I can compare to two other hospitals. I really cannot fault Whipps Cross and I have had the best possible care that could be given and the follow up care has been amazing!! Well done Whipps Cross and thank you! I am writing this whilst in your waiting room.

No parking and no public transport to get there! It’s a big complex with various clinics dotted around in a vast area. The worst is how do you get there, as there is not enough parking space for visitors, nor can you go there easily by public transport!

By far the worst A&E in London, unprofessional and rude staff, lack of hygiene in the building, doctors who couldn’t care less about the patients, the list could go on. No wonder they are in special measures. I would give them zero stars if I could.

I went for a scan and the staff were absolutely brilliant, from the friendly ancillary staff to the medical staff who dealt with me. They were really patient and answered my questions. The one star lost is for the building. It is in desperate need for an update.

Disorgonised. Been sent from one department to another to hear “who sent you hear” spent 11 hours in A&E. No one gives a “sh…t” about you. I felt like im dying with what it appears to be kidney stones and In the end been given pain killers and advice to drink water. How on earth 20yo boy can be a doctor??? Circus not a hospital

I have nothing but praise for the staff at Whipps, they’re under great pressure but still managing to do a great job – Recently I spent five days in there with pneumonia; they saved my life & the food was good too – On the negative side, I did notice some of the patients in the respiratory ward I was in seemed ungrateful and ungracious.

Had to attend two different departments recently for two different issues. Dealt with efficiently in both cases. One required medication, and insisted on sending it to the outpatients’ pharmacy rather than my local pharmacy. This is crazy, because I don’t live very local, and when I got there it appeared to be very badly run.
