"Holiday visitor with trouble breathing"

About: West Cornwall Hospital (Penzance)

Sadly, I am very familiar with hospitals. Over the years I have needed their help on all too many occasions. Numerous injuries and ailments. Sometimes in the UK and sometimes abroad. I have to confess that my visit to West Cornwall Hospital Urgent Care Centre was akin to something out of a dream. From the moment I arrived I was treated with respect and a genuine concern for my well being. I was examined in a detailed and professional way and given a full explanation throughout the process. I was promptly passed from one department after another to build up a clear picture of my condition.This leading to an assessment of appropriate treatment which was followed up the following day with further tests etc. The staff from top to bottom were excellent, one doctor being particularly brilliant. I cannot praise the work of this NHS jewel enough. Anyone from abroad would marvel at this British institution and would return to their homes in awe!! Thank you so much for rekindling my pride in my country.
