I was admitted by ambulance to the A & E department in late December, with a suspected broken neck.
I can't fault both the response by the paramedics and the care I received in A & E. It was a traumatic time but all staff treated me with kindness, respect and professionalism. I felt entirely confident in their care and was delighted that the CT scan showed no break.
Thank you so much to all who were involved in my care. It was my first visit to this hospital and I am hugely encouraged by my experience (though I don't plan to return any time soon!).
