"A and e"

About: Royal Derby Hospital

I arrived at a and e on Thursday with rapid heart rate and chest pains. The care I reicieved was amazing from the minute I arrived from the lovely man on reception who gave me a tissue as I was crying with worry to the emergency doctors, nurses, porters and staff on AAC. I was listened to , supported and truly was given the best care. I was in the hospital for a total of 12 hours until I wAs allowed home. The follow up care getting is second to non also. I shall return with big thankyou's and plenty of chocolate for this amazing team 👍
