"The best of care"

About: Royal Sussex County Hospital

I was blue lighted, by very caring ambulance staff, to rsch in 2015. I was admitted to resus on arrival and found the staff to be exceptionally caring and professional.

I was stabilized and hours later moved to the emergency bed ward, again I was well cared for . I the found my self waking up 4 days later on iITU I had collapsed and was put into a medically induced coma. the staff were unbelievable and took the time to explain to me what had happed to me when I was woken from the coma.

I was them moved down to HDU and again could not fault my care from everyone on the unit. I the was transferred to egremont ward, I was there for 2 weeks.

The staff of this ward took such brilliant care of me and if not for everyone involved from the time I arrived at the hospital I would have died. my grateful thanks to you all.
