"A/E then onto the Surgery ward"

About: Croydon University Hospital

Anything else?

I recently attended A/E after my GP called ahead and they were expecting me for an infection on my leg

I still had to wait around for a few hours (i was in Pain) but its A/E - its to be expected

when i was seen, everyone was kind, helpful and informative

there was a problem with my canula that was casuing me pain when the iv went through it, one of the nurses noticed this and changed it and that sorted tht problem

there was a lack of bed so i was in the waiting area for while but again, everyone was doing their best

I was then moved to a ward for a few days awhere the staff were helpfull and friendly, the ward was clean i had no issues with my stay
