"A&E Help for my elderly Mom: Thank you so much"

About: Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham

Anything else?

Yesterday evening, my 72 year old mother needed to visit A&E Max Fax team for treatment on a sudden large swelling on her jaw. From the initial gentleman that met her and did the preliminary screening from main A&E to the Max Fax nurse, Doctor and team, my Mother was treated wonderfully.

People were kind, comforting and reassuring.

If I knew their names I'd send a "Thank You" card to each of them.

Being such a large place, I was a little apprehensive but I had no need to worry.

Thank you.
