"A&E visit following fall"

About: Bedford Hospital South Wing

My 85-year old mother fell and was taken to A&E with sever bruising to her face and arm. We cannot praise highly enough the level of care and treatment she received. She was seen promptly on arrival, assessed, given tests and a precautionary CT scan by a caring team. Once assured that she was alright, the doctor discharged her within 2 and a half hours after arrival. The team at Bedford's A&E run a very efficient process without losing any of their care and consideration. Well done Bedford!
