"Top rate A & E service."

About: Princess Alexandra Hospital (Harlow)

What I liked

I attended after severe but short heart pain. My preliminary assessment was carried out promptly and in the space of only two hours I had a blood test and the results, an ECG and its interpretation, a chest X-Ray and expert review, a thorough physical examination, and an overall assessment of my condition and report by the Doctor in charge.

I was able to leave fully informed and re-assured that I had nothing to worry about.

What could be improved

I do not think I could have received better service anywhere.

Anything else?

If you are unfortunate enough to need A & E attention my experience was that the PAH in Harlow is a very good place to go.
