"Very happy with care"

About: Altnagelvin Area Hospital / Acute Medical Unit (AMU) Altnagelvin Area Hospital / Emergency department

(as a service user),

I was in Acute medical ward Altnagelvin Hospital last month. Granted I had a long wait in A&E for a bed and can't fault the medical or nursing care. System clearly under pressure but staff remained professional throughout. AMU ward very clean well run and pleasant staff who introduced themselves. Very happy with care and treatment 💯
