"I have nothing but praise for Southend Hospital..."

About: Southend Hospital / Accident and emergency

I just want to say a huge "thank you!" to all concerned at Southend Hospital Accident and Emergency following my very rare visit (not since being admitted with painful cellulitis a decade or so ago) to your establishment earlier this week (Tuesday 4th October) This was following the nasty fall I incurred in Benfleet - beware of uneven pavements! - which required an ambulance journey to have my chin sewn back together! I really can`t thank you enough for the efficient, professional and caring way you looked after me. Oh, and having the sutures put in only hurt a teensy little bit!
