"Emergency referal from my Doctor"

About: Kent & Canterbury Hospital / Accident and emergency

(as the patient),

Made Appointment at 8am for 9am appointment with GP at Estuary View yesterday that resulted in having an ECG at the Medical Centre. The GP made arrangements for me to be seen by the Emergency Clinical Care Team at Kent & Canterbury, on the same day.

On arrival at K&C (10. 15am) there was fast sign in at Reception and then straight into ECC. They conducted another ECG followed by a barrage of tests which finished with a CT Scan.

Discharged at 7pm with an all clear. BRILLIANT! Many thanks to all staff involved. Please ensure this story is passed on to all of those at Estuary View & K& C. Many thanks!
