"Friday night in Kings A & E"

About: King's College Hospital (Denmark Hill)

Anything else?

We attending Kings A and E on Friday night. My husband had a bizarre accident (fell off a bus) and required an ambulance to get him to hospital as we thought it had broken both ankles. The ambulance crew, the Nurse, the DR, the X ray team and the security team (who helped me call a cab) were fabulous. Quick assessment, great communication and all with cheery smiles and humour. We were home within 3 hours of arriving. Thank you to all who looked after us so well. (The porter seems a bit of out sorts - he looked very fed up and was they only member of the team who didn't seem to be a team player)
