"very busy place but i was well treated"

About: King George Hospital

Anything else?

The a&e staff were excellent and cared about me which is interesting since I don't think I've experienced that before at an a&e since every other place I've been to either seeking treatment myself or accompanying someone who needed medical attention. I was quite swiftly dealt with though because I was able bodied and compos mentis while I was on a ward I tended to be forgotten about a few times but not often. The staff were mostly very friendly and seamed a little over burdened. less said about the food the better eh? All hospital food is like that.

Response from King George Hospital

Thank you for your feedback. I was so pleased to hear the A&E staff gave you excellent care. Our Emergency Departments are busy but we are trying hard to make sure that we give the very best service to every single patient. We are working hard to improve our menus and in particular increasing options for evening meals. We are also now providing hot meals in A&E as well as sandwiches. I will pass on your comments to the staff in the A&E. Flo-Panel Coates Director of Nursing
