My little nephew was in hospital for a week or so. The staff were very attentive and helpful. The fact they were extremely friendly was a bonus.
Queen Elizabeth is the nearest hospital to my home and as a result is the one me and my family are sent to whenever there's something the GP can't work out. Which seems to be quite often.
I've had a lot of dealings with staff. From the nurse who called to tell me my mum was out of surgery and was fine and already up and about defying their orders, to the doctor who sat me down to tell me my dad had cancer but that they'd do everything they could. I just can't fault the professional, courteous and extremely supportive way they handle every type of news. They're there for you if you need them with facts and figures to reassure you or a tissue at the ready if you need one.
The hospital itself is clean and well signposted so there's little chance of you getting lost. They have a department for everything it seems, even a special skin clinic to deal with moles, a Macmillan department, an ear nose and throat department and, just, EVERYTHING.
They also don't mind if you're a bit late because you couldn't find a car park and are willing to write a note to send to parking if your appointment means you run out of time on the meter. No getting caught out at this hospital!
The parking charges aren't too bad either. Oh sure, they're no Dartford, but at £1.50 an hour for a London hospital, well, you can't sniff at that. But if you can, it's better to go by public transport because there's a bus stop right outside the hospital with regular buses.
They even have a little coffee shop and sizeable gift shop for all your visiting needs, and the coffee is pretty good... you know, for a hospital.
When I get referred there, I know I'm in good hands and can wave goodbye to worry.
I couldn't praise this hospital enough, for everything its done for me and my family.
Queen Elizabeth opened in 2001, replacing the Greenwich District Hospital that was closed earlier in the year. I have used their clinical services a number of times. This year I was admitted as a surgical patient and I was impressed with the quality of care I received from both medical and non-medical staff right from the time I was admitted up until the time I was discharged. They kept me well informed about my procedure and the post and pre operation care was excellent. I am very grateful to all the staff that treated and cared for me.
I have always found the staff at the queen elizabeth to be very professional- the type you can talk to easily. the hospital itself is very clean and moder with plenty of space. the site itself is VERY big, so as you would expect, they have very clear signd throughout. i last went there for a scan, and didn't have to wait long at all- and there is a good cafe there, albeit not cheap, but all the same, still very good
This hospital was once a private military hospital and stands on Queens land. It was renovated and built up about 7 years ago when it was opened by the Queen. It replaced the old delapidated Greenwich hospital and now serves a wider community encompassing Greenwich, Lewisham, Woolwich and even furthur afield. Like all hospitals it suffers from budget problems but the staff themselves I have always found to be friendly and knowledgeable. There's a free buggy service from 9.30am to 4pm which will take those less able to walk around the hospital for free. Parking is only free for disabled and there's not a lot of parking so it's better to go by public transport.
I have found this to generally offer good service. The staff on the whole tend tobe very personablealthough there are a few things to note. Firstly, the telephone system can be a bit of a challange especially since the link with St Marys hospital - getting through to the right department has been a bit of a challange at times. Car parking here is best described as very difficult. There is very limited space indeed and you must allow a very long drive many times around the car park before finding a space. Therefore dont leave it too fine before your appointment! Small cafe is ok and cash machine and shop.
perfect staff and quality with no exposes of highly contagious sickness
a view from a girl thats dad works for them, the staff are friedly, when I had my daughter there I had a few nice staff around me, one of wich went off duty when I really needed her and I ended up with a very unsupportive midwife, sosngraphers yes they see ultra scans all the time but when your pregant expecting 1st ever baby they all lets get on with it we have back pile of people, the day staff in SBCU are absolutly lovely, the night staff well I am not happy with there professionalism ! rude is not the word and left me seething to hurt one of them.
Friends, I would not recommend this hospital's a&e dept to anyone. especially if you are in pain, it is a waiting ward not an emergency. The attitude here is more of you are in queue and we are busy rather than we care for you. Sad to see the state of affairs in such poor condition, there is no urgency nor did they try to speedup their activities. The reception was kind but the doctors had no sense of urgency at all.. their attitude and body language shouted secondhand treatment. I was not attended to inspite of waiting for 2 1/2 hours! I could find majority of the doctors just finishing their job rather than trying to help the patients. I want to believe this is due to recession and maybe they cant pay for quality doctors and hope the situation will change.
