"crazy busy A&E!!"

About: Queen Elizabeth Hospital (Gateshead)

I Attended A&E last night to find that the majority of other hospitals had closed their doors to new admissions due to high volumes of people falling sick. While in A&E the department was completely overstretched and the staff were having to deal with some challenging patients who were upset by the increased waiting times. The doctors and nurses were outstanding! And very professional on what must have been a very difficult shift for them. The whole team deserves a massive pat on the back. well done guys!!

Thanks for your comments and kind words. Like most hospitals across the UK our A&E department is extremely busy at this time of year. Thank you for taking the time to pass on these comments about our staff - it means a lot to everyone working at the hospital.
