I visited the Emergency Department due to feeling unwell and being advised by NHS 111 to go to the ED. Good service in the ED, has bloods and a ECG done almost immediately and the staff were very kind and reassuring. Was then put in a cubicle where i was hooked up to monitors and eventually given IV fluids and antibiotics. Good service in the ED although very slow and not very forthcoming with explanations regarding my test results.
I was eventually moved up onto the Yellow Acute Medical Ward where i had a peaceful night. Nurses on the Yellow ward were slow to answer patient calls and looked clearly annoyed when a patient pressed their call button even though it is their job to answer it appropriately and i heard one nurse swear under their breath. The doctors were brilliant however and i am very grateful to them.
