"A and E and cardiology"

About: East Surrey Hospital

Following a collapse my wife was taken to A and E where she was treated with the greatest of respect and care by a very professional staff. All the staff were excellent and we were particularly reassured by a doctor. sthe doctor was kind and considerate spending time going through all the details and coming up with a plan of what to do next. This was a Saturday in A and E and it was busy but calm, organised and obviously well managed.

Very well done East Surrey. This was our third trip through A and E and on each occasion you were in the premier league

As a result we were again in cardiology unit who as always extremely professional, well organised, caring and more. Very well done to East Surrey. What they have added to the water certainly works! The consultant is superb, they immediately diagnosed the cause of the problem, arranged what needed to be done and later rang my wife at home.

I cannot fault East Surrey. The only problem for you is keeping up these incredibly high standards
