"Respiratory care on Locke Ward"

About: Princess Alexandra Hospital (Harlow)

Anything else?

Admitted to A and E with exacerbation of COPD just month after last infection , again superb treatment from all. Went up to Locke Ward next morning and received usual care, compassion and excellent medical care - only needed to stay for a couple of days just to regulate medication and get heart rate down . Everything explained to me very clearly and advise given . I feel like a 'Locke Ward Groupie' but I cannot emphasise how comfortable and confident I feel when in their hands.

Once again enough with the moans lets please compliment when deserved!!!
