"A recent emergency trip to A&E in Redhill"

About: East Surrey Hospital / Accident and emergency

(as the patient),

I had severe stomach pains

Arrived in Emergency saw 30 people there and was worried that I would be having to wait a very long time with such an awful pain but I was seen by a Dr Joy very quickly and put wheeled into the major ward and on a pain drip very shortly. Dr Joy did all the tests necessary to diagnose and eliminate anything sinister which was a great relief. I am very grateful to all the staff for their care

Dear Tiger Lilly

I am glad that we were able to get things moving and treat you quickly.

The Emergency Department is often busy (as I am sure that you know!) but the team work very hard to ensure that pain is controlled as quickly as possible.

Your positive feedback will give them a boost and I will share it with them.

I do hope that you are well and thank you for getting in touch.

Best wishes

Dr Ben Mearns

Chief of Medicine
