"A Huge Thank You To My Nurse & Doctor"

About: Cheltenham General Hospital

After 6 days with the worst migraine of my life my partner took me down to A&E. It was a last resort as we had already had the out of hours doctors out twice but nothing was easing the pain and I was severely dehydrated from sickness. I would like to thank both the nurse and doctor who looked after me whilst I was there, hospital is never nice and always makes me anxious but they were fantastic. Unfortunately I was so out of it I didn't get their names, but with all the horror stories you hear about patient care and the poor state of the NHS, I think it's important to take note when you are so well looked after. This is full credit to the people and not necessarily the system, I have relatives who have received terrible patient care from nurses who couldn't care less, so thank you both.
