"Excellent medical and personal care. Thank you"

About: William Harvey Hospital

What I liked

I attended late evening on the friday before Christmas with severe stomach pains. The hospital was very busy with some of the patients being less than cooperative and noisy at times.

I was treated extremely well throughout The nursing staff were hardworking, knowledgable and caring, not just for me but for the other patients. The service from the 3 doctors was first class.

This was a tribute the the NHS and I hope that my thanks and gratitude can be conveyed to those who were working so hard

Thank you

John Woodroffe

What could be improved

Very little. When attending A & E, periods of waiting are inevitable - patients should appreciate this
