"Came into Accident and Emergency ..."

About: Whiston Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

Came into Accident and Emergency last Wednesday at 11.30pm with severe back and stomach pains. Was seen by the triage nurse within a few minutes who gave me some pain killers and then sent through to the doctors within an hour. The doctor quickly had me checked out and had me on morphine within a few minutes. Everything was explained before they did each check or test. I was sent into the pre-operation ward within another hour after x-rays. I would like to thank all the nurses and doctors who quickly recognised kidney stones and took great care of me. Going for CT scan as a follow up within a week - pretty good.
