"accident and emergency department"

About: Eastbourne District General Hospital

After the last visit to A&e where we left dissatisfied we decided to give them a second chance. The department does not seem to have improved at all since our last visit and In fact is a disgrace to the hospital. Although the Dr/Nurse was lovely and attentive and tried to do their job well. The consultant was Rude, and unprofessional. This department really needs to be sorted out with professionalism. It would not surprise me if we lose A&E at the hospital soon.
