"Elderly Mothers visit to A&E"

About: Peterborough City Hospital

My elderly mother was taken to A&E last week after a nasty fall .I followed in my car and was surprised and delighted to see her already in a cubicle having already started her treatment. Both my mother and myself have nothing but the most respect and gratitude to the doctor and various nurses who cared for her . Peterborough hospital is an excellent example of the NHS at its very best .A big thank you to all concerned including the ambulance staff who were amazing.

Response from Annette Parker, Care Quality Strategic Support Manager, Care Quality, Peterborough and Stamford Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

Thank you so much for taking the time to write in with your comments and praise. I will make sure that the Matron for the Emergency Department is aware of your feedback so that he can pass it on to the staff. It is always good news to hear that the care given and everybody's hard work results in making what can be, for our patients and their families, difficult situations a little easier.
