"Well done a and e!!"

About: Basildon University Hospital

My elderly mum was taken to a and e. She was feeling unwell and after having a life saving operation last year we were taking no chances. Mum was seen by nurses and doctor, and had blood tests and an x-ray with the four hours. We did have to wait a further six hours before mum was admitted to Linford ward. But this was a Saturday afternoon going into the evening and the staff were dealing with a large amount of patients, but they were all very kind and caring so a big thank you.

We are really pleased that your Mums recent experience of care in the Emergency Department at Basildon and Thurrock University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust was a good one. We have passed on your kind words to the Emergency department staff.
