"Our first impression on our first time at this..."

About: Queen Alexandra Hospital

My husband collapsed in Fareham shopping centre, on Wednesday 22nd April the attention he received from the staff in the centre,the paramedic and ambulance staff was fantastic, on arriving at A&E the nurse was very attentive we were then taken round to a ward to see the doctor, we cannot praise the nurse enough who was assigned to us and the doctor we saw was marvellous, we explained we lived in Southampton and our only transport was a bus,so he did everything he could to speed up the blood test and treatment to enable my husband to be discharged you couldn't ask for better care. Many thanks to everyone.
