"The AMU is a credit to the hospital"

About: Salisbury District Hospital

Anything else?

I spent time in the AMU yesterday. The whole team from the consultant to the student nurse were professional but friendly . They kept me informed of what was happening throughout. All the treatments and investigations were carried out swiftly with care and I felt they were seeing me as a person. I also had a CT scan and the staff there were also very attentive and reassuring. I would like to thank all the staff for their brilliant care and I would also like to say I would not be worried about being a patient at SDH in future. Not that I would want to be a patient again!
