About: William Harvey Hospital

Anything else?

My partner Nigel visited the A&E department today after an accident involving a clay pigeon causing damage to his face and eye. I would like to thank the department and all the staff involved in his care which was delivered very professionally and with good humour even though the department was very busy. From the very pleasant lady who booked him in, the male triage nurse (who informed us he had been brought over from Canterbury to assist ) and was so compassionate and professional, the female radiographer, and the young doctor from facial injuries who very expertly stitched his face, I would like to thank them all for their expertise and extreme professionalism throughout.
