"The efficiency of the staff"

About: East Surrey Hospital / Accident and emergency NHS Lothian

(as the patient),

I was taken ill on a flight from Edinburgh to Gatwick and was taken by ambulance to E Surrey Hospital. From the first contact with A&E staff to the Staff Nurse ho discharged me I have nothing but admiration and thanks to the wonderful staff.

My husband stayed with me overnight and was made comfortable and made very welcome. He was served with endless cups of tea by Barry. Thank you again.

I'm now home and recovering with the help of Lothian Health Board
