"Accident and emergency"

About: Kettering General Hospital

Accident and emergency is for real accidents and emergencies! I have had the unfortunate experience of attending 5 times in the past 4 years with someone who each time has been seriously ill and a real serious emergency!

The service was faultless. Thank you to all of the staff, who work hard, are dedicate and do a fabulous job.

Unfortunately I see at least 60-70% of people sitting there who are clearly not and emergency and haven't had an accident - please go to your GP.
