"Best Hospital for anything"

About: Whipps Cross University Hospital

On the 24th October 2014, my mum collapsed due to her blood pressure being very low. The ambulance was called and came as soon as they could. When arrived, the paramedics were fantastic and acted very quickly. Constantly reassuring my mum and even made her laugh to help her feel as ease. When we got to the hospital, we had to wait no more then 15-20 mins. Considering it was busy, my mum was seen to right away. All of the staff that attended to my mum were brilliant. The room was spotless and a lovely member of staff came in to ask my mum for food. They were the funniest, kindest and most beautiful natured human being I've ever come across!! They had me, mum , auntie and my nan nearly wetting ourselves with laughter!!! This member of staff put my mum at ease and made her feel a lot better! Mum was asked often if she was feeling ok and if she needed anything. I highly recommend this brilliant hospital for great communication, team work and organisation !! Thank you to everyone for your help yesterday!!! Elena xx
