I recently needed to visit the A&E department as a walk in patient ,on arrival I gave my details to the receptionist and a brief description that I was having pain in my ribs when breathing. I was told to take a seat and wait to be called, within a few minutes i was called into a room by the triage nurse after a brief consultation she took me straight into a cubicle where I was seen by a team of doctors and nurses within 20 minutes of arrival I'd been x rayed had an ECG and blood's taken the full works. I was diagnosed with a mass pulmonary embolism. After a 10 day stay in hospital i was discharged with follow up as a outpatient. I had excellent care from all departments throughout my stay .Thank you.
