"The amazing staff at the Ambulatory Care Unit Good Hope Hospital."

About: Good Hope Hospital / Accident & emergency

(as the patient),

I have terminal cancer. I started feeling unwell with a temperature and to cut a long story short I ended up in the unit last week. I was seen within 15 mins all relevant tests were taken X-rays, Scans Heart, Bloods, and the results were within 3 hours, which I find amazing. The result was I have blood clots in 1 lung and I was given a prescription there and then. It wasn't cancer. A week on I am much better and it is all down to the wonderful staff and doctors on this Unit who I cannot thank enough. They are under pressure all the time but find it in them to care for the patients with kindness and dedication. Thank you one and all.
