"Emergency Admission"

About: Royal Hampshire County Hospital

Within 6 hours or so, I had 3 diagnoses and 4 locations. I mistakenly set off an alarm in a toilet, as the buzzer system was not explained. Some food failed, but minor.

caught a cold from the cleaner.

The good news: only the above prevented a 5 star rating on KempWelch. I have never been treated so kindly or well, as I was by all the staff (sisters excepted). The boys and girls at the coal face brought me back to life, and I have never laughed so much in years. I spent 5 days in their company, being helped and spoken to with kindness, explanations, assistance and recovery. I have taken names where I could, and will contact them directly - each knows the little part they took in my recovery, and I could not be more impressed. If only my health were as healthy!

Response from Royal Hampshire County Hospital

Thank you for your feedback on our emergency department (ED) and Kemp Welch ward. I am sorry that the visit to ED was not of the high standards we aim to provide. However, I am glad that the care and treatment you received during your stay on Kemp Welch was more satisfactory. I have shared your comments with the teams involved and I am sure the staff on Kemp Welch ward will be greatly encouraged by them.

Mary Edwards, Chief Executive
