Original feedback for

Hillcrest Surgery - Twickenham Road

Rude staff

I tried to phone to chase up an urgent referral which the GP was supposed to have made to the QE. I contacted the surgery and they assured me the referral had been made but when I contacted the QE they could find no record of the referral ever having been received. I contacted the surgery again and explained the situation to the receptionist and she kept talking over me and eventually ended the call abruptly without assisting me. If she had listened she would have understood that I was after the email address the referral was sent to and the time it was sent so I could have gone back to the QE with this information to help them locate the referral if it had in fact been done.
