What I liked
I had to make a trip to A&E during a severe gallstone attack only yesterday and i was seen immediately.
Within minutes i was hooked up to a heart monitor,had a canular fitted,bloods taken and xrays ordered.
It was a reassuring atmosphere during a very traumatic time for me.
As happy endings go,it was confirmed that my Gallbladder was playing up and after receiving some powerful pain relief my symptoms began to subside to a tolerable level.
I cant fault the staff at all levels for their compassion,care,professionalism and respect at all times.
I hope the next time i need to visit will be when i have the dreaded Gall bladder removed.
What could be improved
As i didnt find any fault i cant see where improvements can be made.
I suppose its just a case of staff judeging each case on its severity and urgency.
There will always be patients who have to wait longer than others.
