"My thanks to the A&E team late Saurday..."

About: Royal Hampshire County Hospital

What I liked

My thanks to the A&E team late Saurday evening 25/9/2010.. After a fall at home

resulting in a head injury were blood loss was a great concern (ambulance staff could not stop it), I was taken to Winchester A&E dept.... was seen and treated with speed and kindness

and this was a Saturday evening in a City environment !!!

Had to have a CT scan in the early hours of Sunday morning... no one was available to review the result so my scan was sent to a consultant at his home via the internet ! ..

Glad to say no major damage was the reply....

Then after some painful stiches I was transferred to a ward for observation (Kemp Walsh), the night duty nurses were very kind and understanding.

Was informed that head wounds bleed a lot, but mine could have been fatal as I live alone.

So, thank you the 999 team, ambulance service and especially Winchester A&E.

Kindest Regards, David

What could be improved

More info about my injury, the treatment carried out and its after care (for me to do) would be good.
