I got up at 815am last Sunday in Dorking with a pain in my neck and arrived at CCU ward at 1030am having had a stent fitted! 111 prompt and detailed Ambulance crew amazing both in reassurance and control/diagnosis of symptoms the doctor - such a calm and professional manner, both with me and my relatives and a speedy, successful result The nursing staff on CCU and James Hope were caring and knowledgeable - they all seemed to know my case thoroughly. The food was hot and comforting even if it wasn't home cooked, and there was always a cup of tea available I particularly liked the 7 - 730 shift pattern which allowed a thorough change-over/briefing without the usual disappearance of staff although those nurses must be shattered at the end of a shift Everyone kept me informed of my progress and treatment at every stage even in the middle of the night I had little rest at night but mainly due to beepers including mine, and other patients receiving care All of this on a Sunday. Please let me know of any fund-raising events
