"my stay in hospital"

About: Kent & Canterbury Hospital / Accident and emergency

(as the patient),

I am in my 90s and had to be admitted to the William Harvey Hospital in Ashford Kent as an emergency case in May 2013 and I wish to let people know what an excellent service I had received! !

In this day and age when the NHS is slated, I could not find one fault.

The staff including nurses, doctors, porters cleaners and admin staff were all brilliant. After absolutely dreading being admitted to hospital, I can honestly say I will not worry should, Heaven forbid, I need to be admitted again! !
