"Queen's Medical Centre Campus"

About: Queen's Medical Centre

I had to visit a&e last sunday night and as someone with health anxiety and who wasin midst of a stressful situation I fel as at ease as possible. I felt safe and though it was difficult environment to be in with staff having to deal with some difficult and distressed patients, all were professional, and ensured a calm remained across the department. I was spoken to at one point by a nurse who showed a true vocation, they could see my distress and took time to speak to me and encouraged me to stay until seen by a doctor. My fiance and I left reassured and thankful for the service we received from all staff. It must be an incredibly stressful job and I hope, where appropriate they reap rewards in thanks from people like myself.
