"Post viral A & E"

About: Royal Sussex County Hospital

A & E visit with visual disturbances and headache, dullness and fatigue. 3 episodes over 3 days. Quick triage then shortish wait for doc. People after me would have waited a lot longer. Doc was great, extremely thorough then sent me to A and E at eye hospital across the road. 2 hour wait but ok. It was a weekend! Excellent examination all round. Back to original doc who had not only seen other patients but also researched my symptoms and concluded it was probably a change in migraine attacks after flu like illness. I was happy with that diagnosis.

I am glad you were happy with your diagnosis but sorry that you had to wait a while. As I am sure you witnessed, there is a lot of demand on these services, especially at weekends. I do hope you are now feeling better. I will share your feedback with the teams who will be delighted to see it. Andrew Harvey Patient Advice & Liaison Service
