"Long wait"

About: St George Hospital / Emergency Department

(as a parent/guardian),

Waited in the paediatric emergency for hours to be seen by the doctor. The doctor only saw 1 patient I believe, in an hour and a half and in my opinion, spent the rest of the time either on the computer or talking to the nurses about their days off they had. 

Extremely disappointed that we could have been seen during this massive waste of time.

Dear muscamh38,

Thank you for taking the time to write of your recent experience in our Emergency Department.

I was very sorry to read of the long wait you experienced and understand the frustration that must have caused.

I will be sure to pass this feedback on to the Director of Emergency to discuss with all staff. Your feedback is important and assists us to improve the service we provide.

If you would like to discuss this further, I would ask you to make contact with Ms Kath Helling, Patient Experience Officer, on 9113 2687.

Yours sincerely,

Paul Darcy
