I attended your A & E immediatley after arrival from Australia suffering symptons of Gastro. (2nd May 2013) We are Australian citizens visiting on holidays. I was admitted straight away and was examined initially by your nursing staff, followed by a doctor. I was placed on a drip as I was showing symptons of extreme de-hydtarion & stomach cramps, following the long plane trip from Melbourne. At all times your nursing staff & doctor showed me courtesy, sympathy, with typical British humour, understanding & empathy. My morale lifted & I felt much better after the treatment. I was able to obtain tablets & I fully recovered after several days. I was greatful to be a patient in your excellent medical sytem & was glad I was not in the USA! I was not charged for this service. Please pass on my thanks to the nurses, orderlies & doctors on that shift. Bill Stockdale Australia
