Response from Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust

Thank you for this posting. I am sorry to read that you had a bad experience in our A+E department. I am pleased to say that we have just recruited a new matron for emergency medicine. She will commence in post shortly and we will be working closely together to ensure that we continue to improve our service based on patient feedback.

Kind Regards
