"The attention recieved was otstanding."

About: Leicester Royal Infirmary

On Saturday 18th June my Husband, Gregory Surtees visited A&E at Leicester Royal Infirmary. My Husband, who previously has had problems with his spine was having difficulty walking The attention we received was excellent. We were seen quickly . A very thorough set of details were taken from my husband by the sister on reception, we were then taken through to the minor injuries clinic. we were initially seen by a clinical aid who was kind caring and efficient, we were then seen by a nurse and then by a an other nurse who had a specialist brief, they then asked the doctor to look at my husband, who requested an x-ray. My Husband was then taken down for X-ray, . The doctor was able to make a diagnosis . At all times the staff were brilliant! people explained what they were doing and why. We were treated with care and respect.

I would like to say how much we both appreciated the care and professionalism of all the A&E team. Thank you!
