Experiences of Accident & Emergency Services in Brent
Accident and Emergency services are important to us all. As part of a review of A&E services available to the people of Brent we sent volunteers to our key hospitals to find out what the experience of the public was really like. All in all we spoke to 98 people about their experiences and what they felt could be improved. It makes interesting reading. Healthwatch Brent has gathered views from 98 people in its Accident and Emergency Services (A&E) report. To read the report, click here. If you have had an experience of A&E that you would like to tell us about - either good or bad - please let us know via our contact form.
