In early August, I had a problem with swelling and blood blisters appearing in my mouth and as it was out of hours me and my husband attended A&E at Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital.
At about 6. 30pm although the dept was extremely busy being Friday evening during the holiday period, I was seen almost immediately and rushed through to a busy area. I was attended by an excellent mannered nurses who straight away put me at ease. I only waited about 10 minutes to see the doctor who was very helpful and calm.
He asked for bloods to be taken etc. and explained that I would be monitored closely to be sure that there was no further swelling. Within and hour he had results back had taken a photograph on my phone and explained the best he could that I needed to see ENT dept. soon to see if we could get to the bottom of the problem.
At all times he was lovely, helpful, funny and calm. I did let him burst the blisters for me and he said that he would write to my GP to advise a visit with the ENT.
The attention and care I received on my short visit has reaffirmed that they all so such a brilliant job, professionally and great care and humour and I believe they should be given much more credit.
I have now received my appointment for further investigation and would like to pass on my greatful thanks for all their help that evening.
Well done all of you.
