"A & E asthma care"

About: Northern General Hospital

I came to the A & E dept on Easter Sunday morning suffering from a asthma attack. I was taken in after only a 10 minute wait. All the staff from the orderlies right up to the Doctor I saw were really lovely. They explained everything that they did, I also had a chest X-ray and once again the staff in that dept were really caring.

The Doctor sent an email to my own Doctors surgery and also gave me a copy. I can't thank them enough for the care they gave.

I am so sorry to hear about your asthma attack - this must have been very worrying, however you describe the care that you recieved in a very positive way and I was pleased to hear your compliments. Your kind words will be passed on to the staff who are always happy to receive good feedback.

Thank you and best wishes.
