"First class staff, but discharge a bit chaotic"

About: East Surrey Hospital / Cardiology

(as the patient),

I first want to say that everybody I encountered from all the nurses, doctors and support staff were first class. I didn't come across anybody in my short stay having a pacemaker fitted, who didn't give me the best care I could have expected.

My only comment is that the admissions and discharge arrangements are a bit chaotic and I'm sure with a little more thought could be greatly improved.

Dear Petetal

Many thanks for taking the time to post your comments - it's great to hear you describe our staff as first class and I know they will be delighted to read this. I will make sure your comments are passed on to both our admissions and discharge teams as patient feedback is important in helping us develop and improve services.

Best wishes
