"Praise well deserved"

About: Fairfield General Hospital

I thought i should write and give credit where it is due. On Saturday evening i had cause to phone the emergency doctor for my husband, from my initial call to 111 to being accepted at A&E at Fairfield Hosp was exactly 2 1/2 hours which I thought was really good considering it included 111 operator, then a nurse, then a doctor another doctor coming to the house, waiting for an ambulance and finally A&E staff. Credit to everyone for their proffessionism and caring attitudes. Yes we had a long wait for a bed on a ward but the time spent in A&E was faultless. My husband had countless tests and continual care but the staff also had lots of compassion for the person who was with the patients. No staff can be singled out as they were all brilliant (even after a 12 hour shift). Thanks again last
