About: King George Hospital / Accident and emergency

I had a fall from ladder at home and when it became apparent that I had to visit A & E after discussions with 111 I was a bit apprehensive in view of all the negative press coverage recently. However, upon arrival (around 18.30 p.m.)

I was treated very well by everyone, i.e from initial assessment to discharge. The person at the assessment was very pleasant and friendly, (couldn't say the same about the person in window 1 where there was no empathy).The Doctor who saw me and the X-Ray Technician were very re-assuring and brilliant. I cam away felling well looked after and assured. Keep up the good work guys.
