"Routine appointment with extras!"

About: King's Mill Hospital

I had an orthopaedic appointment for back problem. I also was experiencing bouts of chest pain with pins and needles sensation down my left arm (I had had this ongoing for the previous 8 weeks) When asked to lie down the pain increased and it was most uncomfortable. The Dr called for a Nurse as they suspected something more serious . Within seconds I had 2/3 nurses in attendance, all doing varying tasks whilst informing me what was happening and that they were going to take me to A&E. In A & E the same efficiency in hand over to A&E staff, was smooth, and efficient. Courtesy, kindness, attention, keeping me informed at each stage of their investigations. I cannot praise the staff enough. A Senior Nurse again reflected the previous high standards of care. Thankfully all was well and I was able to go home, but a definite thumbs up to the staff at Kings Mill!
