About: Darent Valley Hospital

I have spent the last 18 months gradually becoming more dismayed at my treatment with a hospital situated in London. I have an outstanding GP who has spent so much time trying to help me with some health issues. Really and in all honesty as a last resort, and I cannot apologise enough for this, he referred me to Darent Valley Hospital. My expectations were rock bottom, however I cannot speak highly enough of my treatment at darent. I am a retired nurse (Joyce Green Hospital) and have always been an advocate of the NHS and Darent excelled in all areas. My doctor was brilliant, understanding, informative and I was involved in my consultation and most importantly the decision making process. Everything they said they would do, i.e. MRI, physio etc. has been booked within a very short time, and with appointments only a couple of weeks away (they were non urgent). The MS Nurse Specialist was also outstanding, treating me as an equal and although I looked to her for specialist knowledge she understood that I have a degree of knowledge as well. Answered all my texts, thank you. Fantastic team!

Response from Darent Valley Hospital

Dear Wendy Wow what a glowing review and from a former nurse of Joyce Green Hospital which is wonderful. It is very important that patients are involved in the decision making about their care and it was lovely to see that this had been embraced regarding your treatment. Both your consultant and our MS Nurse Specialist have been informed of your very kind words and we do hope that your condition continues to improve. With best wishes The Communication Team Darent Valley Hospital
