i was born in st georges hospital and my mum said they were great to her and she had the nicest midwife and they give you your prescription quick and it doesn't take long at all
We were transferred from Surrey to this hospital and I got to see the children's and maternity units. The hospital was very understaffed, so there wasn't adequate attention given to any of the children by nursing staff. Some of them were very good though, very kind and caring but there was only so much they could do because of the number they had to care for.
The consultants were very friendly and accessive, they took their time in discussing everything with us and keeping us informed of anything. One consultant, I don't think I'm allowed to name her here, went beyond the call of duty for us.
The maternity ward left a lot to be desired. The toilets needed a good clean up.
I visited my son last Saturday, who was seen in A&E on the previous Wednesday with severe stomach pains. By Saturday, he had not been seen by another doctor and had had nothing to eat or drink and was starving. He was on a waiting list for a scan but with no information about how long the wait would be. My advice is: don't be ill at the weekend! There seems to be a severe shortage of doctors and many departments are closed.
i think we are very lucky to have such a world renowned hospital locally its clearly not perfect but what hospital is my first daughter was born there and the care given to both my late parents with terminal conditions was first rate it specialises in so many fields its importance cannot be underated
This is a fantastic hospital at the heart of the local community. Almost all of the staff here really do care and want to help. No hospital is perfect, but I really think St George's does its best in difficult circumstances: funding cuts, increased patient numbers, etc. There are some world class consultants based at St George's too along with the very prestigious University of London campus on site, which seems to attract some of the best medical students.
Found the dermatology deparment here very poor didn't listen, didn't help me. Luckily I then went to Guy's who were brilliant.
