"great hospital - save St Helier Hospital!"

About: St Helier Hospital

What I liked

My mum burnt her hand badly and we had to take her to A&E - she was seen quickly and the staff were great

What could be improved

You need a ring cutter in A&E!

Anything else?

This hospital is too important to the community to be closed! I also had my baby here in May 2012! If I had had to go to Kingston I would not have made it as I was already 4cm dialated and in severe pain.

Sutton needs St Helier!

Response from St Helier Hospital

Thank you for taking the time to let us have feedback about your mum's recent visit to the A&E department at St Helier Hospital.

I am sorry to hear about your mum's burn. I hope she is getting better.

I am pleased your experience in the A&E was so positive and I have passed your comments on to the team.

Finally, I note your comment about the cutter. This is something we do offer, so I will ask the team to look into it. It might be that they were trying to avoid doing it and to save your mum's ring.

Thank you again for your feedback.

Pippa Hart

Director of Nursing
