"Excellent treatment of my partner with chest pains"

About: Eastbourne District General Hospital

My partner came down with chest pains at work and was rushed to Eastbourne DGH by ambulance. Her care was excellent from start to finish with tests being started on arrival with constant re-assurance from every member of staff including nurses, doctors and admin staff. Throughout the process every procedure was explained and particular care was taken by each person to make sure my partner was comfortable and her privacy and dignity maintained. She was carefully observed over an entire day and discharged with good advice. Communication with her GP was excellent both on the day and since as information has been exchanged to good effect. We cannot thank the hospital staff enough for their treatment.
