What I liked
I came into A&E late one friday night, suffering from chest, left arm and jaw pains. I believed I was worrying over nothing, and thought I was overreacting as I am only 36 years old. Something told me to go in..
Unfortunetly I was having a heart attack.
The staff in A&E were great and put me at ease straight away. Friday night in A&E is quite an experience and I think you are all truely stars for what you have to put up with in there!!!
Due to further complications I stayed 12 days. I was cared for mainly on Torcross and Bickleigh wards (but also Thrushell and Crownhill wards) where I can not thank the staff enough for my care! They are all fantastic! I really can not thank you enough for the care I received. I am sure that I will remember some of you as long as I live, and will always be grateful for what you do!
Thank you so much.
What could be improved
The lack of beds put the staff and patients under great stress. Admitably I can only assume this is a government funding issue.
