"My recent visit via A&E"

About: Poole General Hospital

Anything else?

The doctor was without doubt one of the most caring and efficient doctors I have ever met. (I worked with Doctors in the NHS for over 25 years) He saw me in A&E and his care was faultless. He is a great asset to Poole Hospital and to the Gynacology dept. His boss should be very proud of him, and I hope that they will make sure that he knows how appreciated he is by me and I'm sure, other patients that he deals with. I was scared and not in a good place at all when I attended A&E on Friday 13th December in the morning after being directed there by my GP. He made a frightening situation for me into a much more bearable one. He put me at my ease and was gentle and caring throughout my examination, I only wish I could have continued my treatment at Poole. I would also like to thank everyone including the nurse who assisted the doctor, she was lovely. In fact everyone in A&E were first rate.
