I visited A& E on Friday morning after a struggling for a week with a chest infection and my asthma at crisis point. The receptionist was very sympathetic and kind. I was quickly seen and I had blood tests, scans and was seen by a doctor who reassured me and went through my results. We agreed a comprehensive plan of treatment with the reassurance I should return or be admitted if things changed. Staff explained what would happen next so I wasn't left wondering when having to wait. I was so relieved not to be admitted, but also reassured that I would be if the next few hours didn't go to plan. I feel much better educated about my condition as the doctor took time to explain the treatment options. Thank you to everyone.
