"I commend Tracey and David for my speedy treatment"

About: East Surrey Hospital / Accident and emergency

(as the patient),

My uncle was in Tilgate ward, very sick - to the extent, my cousin and I were sleeping by his bedside 24/7.

During this time I developed painful and serve swelling in both legs, which gave me cause for concern.

I asked my uncle's care team who sent me directly to the emergency room. I explained my situation and sat down resigning myself to a long wait.

Cutting to my reason for writing, I no sooner sat than my name was called. The speed with which I was seen and treated and referred was fantastic!

I would commend Tracey Johnson and David Barton for their treatment! They put a very worried person at ease taking into account my uncle's situation as well.

Myself and my family would commend them both for my speedy treatment.

With my very best regards
