About: Leicester Royal Infirmary

Anything else?

I was admitted into Accident and Emergency last Thursday due to trapped nerves in my Spinal cord causing me pain and numbness down my right side. I was seen immediately By nurses and a doctor who made a thorough assessment before ensuring I was made to feel comfortable whilst running the necessary tests. I was impressed by how the medical Staff were effectively balancing treating patients whilst prioritising patients needs and in a Calm and professional manner on this busy Ward. Staff were efficiently working well together and were friendly and kind to patients. After such a dissapointing birth experience at Leicester General Hospital 6 months ago, whereby most support staff were not only loitering around, but were also quite unnessesarily unplesant, I was happy to come away from Leicester Royal Infirmary feeling that my faith in the NHS has now been restored. Thank you for making me feel comfortable and well again.
