"Nurse in a&e fantastic"

About: Southampton General Hospital

My husband had to visit a&e in Soton Gen Hospital qnd though we had a long wait we appreciated the fact that others arrive with more severe injuries and had to take precedence. Once into the care system we were both impressed with the standard of care and the attitude of staff, nothing is too much trouble for them! The staff in X-ray never seemed to mind having to keep transporting my husband back to A&e and a big thanks to the nurse practiser who was wonderful in her approach to the care and outcome for my husband, loved her approach and manner just what you ned when you are apprehensive and worried about what is happening to you. She was stellar!
