"Outstanding throughout"

About: East Surrey Hospital

Having had what might have been a stroke at Gatwick airport i was taken to East Surrey hospital. Certainly i had to wait as they were really busy but the staff were fantastic i was there 2 days and was massively impressed with the treatment and fantastic attitude of all the staff. Well done Now we need the government to show financial support to all these dedicated people
