"Holiday Emergency"

About: West Suffolk Hospital

I was travelling to Essex for a week with relatives. I had been suffering palpitations for a couple of days but these intensified on Sunday morning. We went to A&E where I was seen immediately by a Triage Nurse. I was sent for a Cardiograph and had blood taken. This was followed by a consultation with the doctor who decided to have another Cardiograph done. Following this the doctor spoke to me again and suggested I visit my doctor on my return home

I left very much relieved to finish my holiday.

At all times I was treated with respect and kindness by all staff I came into contact with on my visit especially the Doctor who kept me informed as to what they were doing and why.
