"For the first time in my life ..."

About: Worthing Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked For the first time in my life I suffered from a bad seizure caused by something unknown, but more likely stress. I was taken in by ambulance and seen pretty quickly by medics. I was subsequently discharged as the symptoms seemed to calm down. Within 5 hours I was back after yet another fit, I was admitted straight away. Whilst at times the length I had to wait to see a doctor were a little bit long, I was dealt with very quickly and with some dignity. The nursing staff were amazing, they get too many knocks as it is! What could be improved? Food, enough said! Anything else? I hope the nursing and admin staff get more credit than they already do. Thank you all for putting my mind at rest.
