Firstly I am a healthcare professional, and never needed to use our very own services.
I became unwell a week or so ago with what I thought was just a cold, my chest got steadily worse.
On Sunday I attended the walk in centre on Monks road and was seen promptly by a nurse practitioner called Ian, he was excellent and soon realised I wasn't so well. He nebuliser me in the walk in centre and sent me straight to A&E.
I still didn't realise I was 'that' poorly. I was seen within minutes in A&E by a nurse and a Dr, they gave me further treatment. I was now thinking that I might be a bit more poorly than I once thought!
After Iv drugs and plenty of nebulisers I wasn't getting much better. Btw all the staff (some who I knew) were professional and very caring through out. I was then taken in to Resus, this is when I knew things got real!
I was then reviewed by two consultants (this was a Sunday BTW Mr Hunt if you're reading this). Again I did know both consultants. Dr Scheele and Dr Daniels both put me at ease, made me feel much better.
I was then taken to MEAU and was seen very promptly again. I was then moved to Dixon ward, the care and treatment received on there was second to none. The ward felt very calm, and welcoming. Again I did know some staff, and they also remained very professional through out.
Also, being a patient and on the other side of things you do hear how people talk to people, and the staff should be proud of how they speak to patients, I heard everyone introducing themselves to patients. The respect shown to a patient with dementia was brilliant.
Thank you again to all of the people involved in my treatment.
Lincoln County Hospital is a very very good place to be treated. Although, I don't want to go back in, I know wouldn't be scared to go in as an inpatient.
