"First class service"

About: Southend Hospital

Through the screening programme, diagnosed with an abdominal aortic aneurism in September which required treatment and referred to Southend Hospital.

An out-patient appointment followed by CT scan, pre-op assessment and subsequent admission and surgery followed all within a 6-week period. Fantastic service.

On arrival for the OP appt check-in was simple using the electronic system, however, there were extremely helpful volunteers around to give assistance if needed.

Instructions via the television screens when your patient number is called to move you into the next waiting area are straightforward and the signing in the hospital is very good.

At each visit the experience has been equally good. I am completely impressed by the treatment received, the staff at all levels and the systems in place and highly recommend it.
