Having been experiencing chest pain and some breathing difficulty following a cold I went to A&E last Saturday morning. I was assessed within half an hour and with suspected pneumonia sent straight through for further assessment. I cannot think of one member of staff who was not friendly or courteous, the tests and my treatment were fully explained to me by the Doctor assigned to me and I was kept very comfortable. I went from A&E to the Acute Medical Unit where I am happy to say the same again and from there to the Tilgate Ward where I stayed for 2 nights whilst undergoing IV antibiotoic treatment. Whilst I did not require very much hands-on care myself, I cannot express enough admiration for the work the Nurses and HCAs do on the Wards and with such a positive and caring attitude. They were always clearly very busy but did not give the impression that anything was a nuisance or any trouble. They also maintained a good sense of humour which can't be easy all the time! From reading other reviews this is reflected across the Hospital. I feel very lucky to live on the doorstep of such excellent healthcare facilities. Keep up the good work, you're all amazing!
