"My treatment from A & E to ITC to Ward."

About: Hillingdon Hospital

Anything else?

Thankyou Hillingon that I will celebrate my 87th Christmas and New Year due to my excellent treatment. I was admitted feeling disorientated and poorly to the A & E department and went in to septic shock - at this stage I was treated immediately by various doctors and nurse from Intensive Care - I was then taken to intensive care ward and diagnosed with Septicemia - I was pumped with Antibiotics and given first class one-to-one care and with skill and dedication and humor - the doctors and nurses helped me turn corner in 10 days when I was moved to Hayes ward for a further 2 weeks - where again the dedication and application of nurses shone through - also my daughter and son where treated extremely well - with flexibility of visits etc. So 3 months later - here I am in south of France enjoying sunshine and looking forward to Christmas. Thanks again to the dedicated, caring and wonderful staff at Hillingdon - I would not be here today without you. Happy Christmas Patrick M

Once again thank you for taking the time to write and it is nice to hear such a positive experience.
