"A AND E Peterborough"

About: Peterborough City Hospital

I have read in the papers and heard on television how bad the NHS is and in particular the A AND E departments. My wife attended with suspected stroke. She was seen by a nurse in about 5 minutes. She was examined by a doctor in about half an hour. She had a head scan in two hour. She was admitted to ward B12 in four hours. She had a full CT scan and biopsy both with results in 48 hours. They are discussing her after the weekend and say depending on the biopsy she may be on chemo quicker than she can blink. She saw a specialist nurse NHS/Macmillan before discharge with her steroids and omeprazole.. They were absolutely spot on professional and genuinely caring.
