"Visit to A&E"

About: Northern General Hospital / Accident and emergency

V pleased with the service the hospital provided in A&E today.

Although I had to wait 2 hours the care and investigation were very good.

The doctor was polite and gave me a thorough examination.

The information to the cause and remedy were excellent.

I had chest pains over a period of 10 days.

A history in the family of heart problems.

So it was reassuring that I was generally ok.

Although I don't want to be visiting a hospital, for obvious reasons, I feel the Northern General a great place for treating the sick and injured.
