"Agony to ecstasy"

About: Darent Valley Hospital

Fell 3 metres from a garden ladder this morning and badly dislocated my shoulder. Was in total agony by the time I limped into A&E. From reception, through triage, x-Ray and treatment your staff were superb. They were sympathetic to the amout of pain I was in and very quickly processed me through to the treatment stage. I was dreading the reallgnment but the nurse practitioners performed the procedure painlessly. I was gobsmacked and massively impressed I almost kissed them both! I fell at 11:20 and arrived back home at 15:20. Now that's impressive. Many thanks Derwent Valley. Best regards, Shaun

Dear Shaun Thank you for this glowing review of our Emergency Department. Feedback such as this always gives our staff such a morale boost, although we are not sure how they would have reacted if you had kissed them but appreciate the sentiment!
