After a nasty fall on a country walk I went to A&E on Sunday 21 July I was seen quickly and X rayed and treated well after fainting from a combination of pain and a totally airless and stifling room on one of the hottest days of the year. I would like to commend the professionalism of all the nursing staff, most especially the nurse practitioner who was back on duty after a only a few hours rest but whose diagnosis, determination to seek advice from senior doctors and immaculate, detailed and thorough notes eased my transfer to my local hospital. The department was extremely busy and the working conditions for staff are most unsatisfactory. It's amazing how they maintain their calm and quality of care in these conditions.
