"Brilliant care"

About: Peterborough City Hospital

Anything else?

I was taken into Peterborough City Hospital A and E department on Saturday night because of a car crash. The ambulance came very quickly and after being cut out my car and monitored, I was taken to hospital very quickly too. I waited for 10 minutes just to wait for a bay and while I waited the ambulance crew were making me smile all the way through at this most painful and difficult time. Then I was seen my a doctor and was sent for X-rays almost immediately! Then was told I had bad bruising and damaged tissue and was sent home to take strong painkillers. I want to say a huge thank you to that doctor, the firemen, ambulance crew and police for saving my life and making me feel just a little bit better!! Amazing people out there! Thank you once again.
