"Admission to A & E"

About: Good Hope Hospital

I was extremely surprised on my first ever visit in an ambulance to A&E, on arrival I was immediately attended to by several nurses and doctors who started treating me , they were extremely friendly , efficient and methodical , and I soon had pain relief for my ailment . I was kept fully informed of what was happening and fortunately after 4 hours I was in a good enough position to be let home . The A & E unit itself is very modern and is capable of dealing with many patients. Overall I was totally impressed with the whole situation and can't thank the staff enough for their help
