"Treatment for broken ribs and shoulder"

About: William Harvey Hospital

Taken to A & E from Canterbury - very busy department but was seen very quickly; punctured lung sorted out painlessly and professionally (I didn't know that it was damaged)! X-rayed and tranferred to Kings D ward for overnight stay - very friendly and efficient staff. I have to return for review next week. Very very pleased with my brief encounter with this hospital and staff. Thank you all very much for your help. Dave Seddon

Response from William Harvey Hospital

Dear Dave, It must have been really frightening to learn that you had a punctured lung, but I'm so relieved to learn that it was sorted out quickly and efficiently. I hope the review during this forthcoming week provides reassurance - very best wishes for a quick recovery.
