"Very happy with staff and treatment"

About: Royal Derby Hospital

I attended A and E with a fairly severely cut forehead at 8pm on Friday 22 July 2016. I was treated with quiet and friendly concern and unhurried politeness by reception, the triage nurse, the nurse who first checked and dressed my wound, and by the specialist doctor who treated me. I felt that great care was taken to check the extent of my injuries, to keep me and my wife informed, and to ensure that the stitching, etc., were done to a high standard. I hope that my comments will be made known to the staff concerned.

Response from Royal Derby Hospital

Good morning,

Thank you for your kind comments regarding the care you received last Friday at our Emergency Department (ED).

We have passed your compliment onto the ED team, as well as senior managers for this area and asked it that is shared with all staff.

We do hope that you are recovering well following your injury.

Kind regards

The Patient Advice and Liaison Services Team
