"Visit to A+E on a Saturday afternoon"

About: Stoke Mandeville Hospital

I went to A+E Department, the first time I had ever been to one for myself. I did not wait long to see the nurse even though the waiting room was pretty full. They explained everything and took some bloods. I waited another 50 minutes and then saw a very nice doctor who did an examination. They could not have been nicer. The whole experience was good, I cannot thank them enough, I left reassured and felt a lot better. It is easy to criticise the NHS but they all do a tremendous job!
