About: Southampton General Hospital

I was driven to the hospital by a Paramedic, an extremely competent lady. Apart for a few delays the treatment I received was of the highest quality. The staff were all caring, cheerful and inspired utmost confidence in their professional ability, accredit to the NHS. Fortunate it was not a heart attack. It turned out to be pleurisy, very painful but not life threatening. I was allowed to leave after about five hours having been given a seven day packet of Co-amoxiclav, which I have almost finished.. I now feel fully recovered and wish to express my sincere thanks to all those involved in my treatment.
