"stroke of luck"

About: East Surrey Hospital

I went the a an e department the previous evening suffering from confusion. I was seen very quickly with care and compassion. After having blood tests. I was asked to come back one the morning to the TIA clinic the EMU which I did. I was greeted very well with happy smiles and cared for very well over th e day by a nurse. It was a long day but it is a very busy hospital as you would imagine. I didn't mind as the treatment was free, which cannot be said for a lot of countries. I was later admitted with suspected TIA and kept in overnight. First thing in the morning I had an MRI scan and later found the results showed no damage which was great as I was pretty worried. All in all the treatment was great the staff friendly and reassuring and I left with a great weight of my mind. Thankyou
