"Worsening Chest Pain"
About: Lister Hospital Lister Hospital Stevenage SG1 4AB
These are the symptoms the incredible A&E staff were faced with: Recently returned to the UK from the tropics. Suffering a cough for over 3 weeks. Asthmatic. Over 50. Ribs were pressed too hard in a massage. Breathless. Increasing chest pain. Everything was tested and viewed and some tests were repeated: X-ray, scan, blood tests, sugar level, ECG, BP. I was given excellent care; pain was dealt with and the staff did not stop testing until they found the culprit. 3 pills into my prescription, I needed no further pain medication and began to feel better. Spent a quiet week instead of what is more normal for me. I really cannot thank the staff enough for their diligence and help. A&E at Lister Hospital is one area of the NHS that does work well.
