"My first visit to the hospital"

About: Herts & Essex Community Hospital

The first thing that came to my mind how the receptionist created me when walking through the door. I sat on the chair waiting for my husband. Within a few minutes I was asked if I was ok. Even the cleaners that walked past said good morning. We were shown were to go. When I got there I became unwell the nurse in orthopaedic came to my assistance straight away and I was looked after. The nurse that looked after me usually works in gynecologist ward. But new exactly what to do. The consultant was very thorough and made me feel that there was light at the end of the tunnel.
